The New England Aquarium team searching for right whales, at sunrise in the Bay of Fundy. Johanna Anderson and Kelsey Howe scan the waters while Marianna Hagbloom logs data, Amy Knowlton adjusts a GPS unit, and Brigid McKenna steers the Nereid.

North Atlantic right whales used to turn up large numbers off Maine’s coast, but now, adapting to climate changes, they are being spotted further north in Gulf of St. Lawrence.
