A total of 20 offspring being added to a population doesn’t seem like much. But, when the species is one as endangered as the North Atlantic Right Whale, even this number is worth noting. A story in today’s Savannah Morning News talks a bit about the calving season and is a reminder that we can start looking for the mom’s and calves along the outer edges of Massachusetts soon.
