North Atlantic Right Whale Territory

North Atlantic right whales migrate seasonally between calving and feeding grounds along the eastern coast of the United States. Most North Atlantic right whales go south for the winter, to the shallow coastal waters off the southeastern United States. That's where the females give birth to calves - a single calf every 3-5 years. In spring the whales migrate north.
