Mom & Baby Right Whale Spotted Near Flagler Beach


Flagler Beach, FL - Last year, we didn't see any mother-calf pairings during the birthing season.

This year, North Atlantic right whales are popping up a lot more often in the Volusia-Flagler area.

The Marineland Right Whale Project found a mother and her new baby off Flagler Beach yesterday morning (February 12th), the sixth confirmed sighting so far this season.

That sighting comes a week after a different mother and baby were spotted near Daytona Beach Shores.

There hasn't been this many confirmed mother-baby pairings for the endangered species locally since 2016, according to Marineland.

Experts estimate around 400 North Atlantic right whales worldwide.
