Two adult female North Atlantic right whales are traveling together southeast of Tybee Island, GA. Both whales are known to NOAA Fisheries.
A right whale nicknamed "Boomerang" (bottom right), is 23 years old and last calved in 2014.
Her companion, “Magnet” (top left), is ten years old and has no prior calving history.
A pair of adult female right whales were a welcome sight following the 2018 season when zero calves were documented.
