The Marine Resources Council's Right Whale Monitoring Program was established in 1995 to reduce human impacts to the endangered North Atlantic right whale. Citizens on the east coast of Florida report land‑based sightings of right whales to our hotline (1‑888‑97‑WHALE). This information is passed on to local ship traffic to avoid ship strikes, which account for over one‑third of documented right whale deaths in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Whale Volunteer Party April 5th!

It's that time of year again... it's the first day of spring, the last of the right whales are making their way north (a few a little slower than others), and it's time for our Right Whale Volunteer Party! It's a potluck lunch, so please bring a dish to share. A presentation will be given on how the whale season went, we'll award our Volunteer of the Year, and we'll be giving away door prizes and possibly have a silent auction! This is the fun, not-to-be-missed whale party of the year! Please RSVP if you plan to join us! MRC will provide paper products, silverware, cups, ice, and drinks.

April 5th, 11:30am, Lagoon House/MRC at 3275 Dixie Hwy. NE, Palm Bay, FL 32905.
