The right whales are migrating to warmer waters off the Georgia and Florida coasts to calve.
DNR asks boaters who see a right whale to slow and not assume the whale will move from your path. Wildlife officials urge people to record the latitude and longitude or identify the location of the whale with regard to buoy, note the direction of the whale’s travel and notify authorities and other ships in the area immediately. In Georgia, call 800-272-8363.
Please be careful of the endangered mothers and newborn calves while boating.
