Right whales: “Doing their part”

Unfortunately, the wind has kept me from the dolphin grounds for the past two days. April is a tricky time of year in Bimini; there are flat calm, stunning days and then blowy, windy days like today. I’m optimistic the winds will calm down in time for tomorrow’s trip though. Fingers crossed!


Since I was land-bound all day, it was time to catch up on manuscript edits, grant applications and news in the outside world. That’s when I came upon the news of record high births among North Atlantic right whales. Now, don’t get too excited – record births still only means 39 new calves, but it’s a positive sign and positive signs don’t come too often for this highly endangered species.
