Blue alert: have you seen this young right whale (see photo)? He was one year old when he went missing, after being run over by a ship, and he'd be 3 now if he's still alive.
Now is an important time for right whales, those critically endangered giants of the sea. Efforts are underway to reduce harm to whales, including whales getting run over by big cargo ships and whales getting tangled up in fishing gear.
To learn more and find out how to help save right whales, drop by Ocean Conservancy and/or the New England Aquarium. These venerable institutions are leading efforts to protect right whales, and they can use your help.
And, check out the info on whales and more at the New England Aquarium's great blog, The New Blue.
BTW, let me know if you'd like to see more of these calls to action for ocean conservation.
