It's that time again! December kicks off this year's North Atlantic Right Whale Season. MRC's very own North Atlantic Right Whale Coordinator, Julie Albert, will be speaking about the status of the endangered whales. This season she will be giving a population update highlighting the 2% population loss this summer. She will also be giving a general overview of their life history, biology, threats and conservation status, as well as, teaching how to identify and protect North Atlantic right whales.
