According to NOAA, there are only about 360 North Atlantic right whales remaining in the world. This critically endangered species uses the Atlantic coast off Georgia and Florida as calving grounds. Debbie Wingfield, Volusia County’s marine mammal stranding coordinator, will discuss right whale history, biology, reproduction, feeding habits and migration patterns. She’ll also explain how we can help this species.

Meet at Lyonia Environmental Center, 2150 Eustace Ave., Deltona.
