right whale

Passion drives local project to negate human impact on right whales

Day one of whale spotting with the Marineland Right Whale Project- it was a chilly, nebulous February morning. I took a windy bike ride to the St. Augustine pier and thought for certain the whale-spotters would cancel because of the weather.

But I was five minutes early and the last to arrive. When I walked up to the group of older people with raingear and binoculars, there was no sign of plans changing.
