The Travels of Mother #3560 and Calf
As outlined in our season summary, our most-sighted right whales this season were first-time mother, Catalog #3560 and her calf. They went south and up into the Gulf of Mexico. As of 27 March, they were south of the Florida Keys, and, may be coming back north, through the Marineland area, enroute to their summer grounds. If you are along the coast, keep your eyes peeled and the Right Whale Hotline number,
Volunteers and volunteer effort are at the core of our program. However, there are expenses. We buy office supplies, computer and photography supplies, binoculars, team bags, GPS units, and drones. There are also insurances, and bookkeeping and accounting costs. Bottom line: it all adds up.
Individual donations are a significant part of our support. If you would like to contribute financially to this effort, and any amount is most appreciated, please make your check payable to Associated Scientists at Woods Hole, and mail to Box 721, Woods Hole, MA 02543. The donations are tax-deductible, and we will send you an acknowledgement.
We assure you that none of your donation will be used for salaries. We write proposals for foundation grants to cover this item.
In past years, we have successfully raised the money to keep the program going. Please help us to do it again!
