Sighting Update

Late yesterday, Julie Albert, our colleague with Marine Resources Council, received a photo of a right whale swimming south along Canaveral Seashore and we assumed that is was likely Catalog #3450 (Clipper) and calf. However, Julie also received a reported whale sighting just north of Ponce Inlet, where we saw Clipper the day before. These two locations are too far apart to be the same whales, so the possibility exists of additional whale(s) unknown to us. Many thanks to Becki and Team 5 for extending their land survey south to check out the area. Nothing has surfaced so far today, but we know that the whales can appear at any time!
