A year’s worth of data collected by hydrophones in the waters off of the southern tip of Greenland indicates that some endangered northern right whales may be ‘hanging out’ near Cape Farewell Grounds. It will be interesting to learn what is deduced in the follow-up research. Is this a separate population of the NARW or is it a small group of those that we see along the Eastern seaboard that has gone wandering?

The New Bedford Whaling Museum supports the efforts of the many members of the North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium as they work to protect this highly endangered species. We proudly display the skeletons of an NARW and her fetus in our Jacobs Family Gallery, http://bit.ly/TFmVj .
