Hello everyone, it’s Danielle with Quoddy Link and I just wanted to wish everyone, including my Mom is St. Catharines and very happy Mother’s Day.
Speaking of mom’s, I do want to report that there have already been 12 new humpback moms reported in the Gulf of Maine. Last year was very impressive with 87 confirmed humpback calves. Another big Happy Mother’s Day goes out to the 38 North Atlantic right whale mom’s this year. This is a fantastic number of calves born into a critically endangered population.
The photo below is Six’s 2007 calf that will be officially getting named this weekend. The votes must be submitted by Monday and I will let you know when I hear the results.
