The beautiful right whales have returned to Cape Cod Bay. With fewer than 500 North Atlantic right whales on earth we are honored and rejoice every spring when they return to the waters off of Provincetown. Wart, an endangered North Atlantic right whale returned this year with her newborn calf. This is a rare brilliant sight, let’s be hope it will be an upward turn for the right whale!
Sadly, the name “right whale” came from the simple idea that it was the “right” whale to hunt. Right in the sense it is a slow moving whale, floated after death and had enormous amounts of oil and baleen. Although commercial whaling ended in the 30’s the right whale has had a difficult struggle to populate the ocean again as they once did.
