New Right whale video - winter mating & feeding

The Bay of Fundy is probably best known worldwide for having the highest tides on the planet but one of our other claims to fame is as impressive: our Bay is part of the critically important habitat region for the endangered North Atlantic Right whale. There are only about 350 of these whales left on the planet. A USA Today documentary video released this week shows Right whales thriving, mating and feeding in the winter months; suggesting that the population may finally be stabilizing.
