Do the Right Thing
Today, whales are threatened by disease, loss of habitat and other factors which lead to an average of one stranding a week along Florida’s coastline. They are also sentinels of our oceans, helping us better understand the relationship between their well-being and the health of the environment we share with them.
There are as many as 12 whale species that inhabit Florida’s coastal waters, including the most endangered of all great whale species on the planet—the Northern Right Whale, which depends on Florida’s warm winter waters for calving and nursing their young.
