Re: Right Whales

2023/24 Right Whale Birthing Season - Of 19 Births, 3 have died
Oceana Canada campaign director Kim Elmslie said observers should have logged between 25 and 30 new calf births so far, since the total local whale population of 360 contains about 70 reproducing females.
At least three, of the 19 calves born, are believed to have died, this season*.
NOAA data show births began rebounding, after hitting a low of zero, in 2018. They rose to seven the following year, 10 in 2020, and 20 in 2021, before dipping back to 15 in 2022, and 12 last year.
Right whales, it said, become sexually mature at around 10 and give birth to one calf after a yearlong pregnancy. While the gap between births is usually three years; now, right whales are having calves every six to 10 years.
While a "relatively" productive year for right whales would see at least 20 births, rates of human-caused mortality, and serious injury, mean there need to be at least 50 or more calves, per year, for "many years" to stop the decline of the species.

* The birthing season for right whales starts toward the end of November, and goes on until February. They [generally] give birth off the coasts of Georgia, and Florida, and make their way back up north, into Canadian waters, for feeding.
