Cause Of Whale Death Under Investigation

An endangered North Atlantic right whale has been found dead off the Virginia Coast, marking the 40th mortality in an ongoing crisis. The adult female, identified as #1950, was discovered over this past weekend, on Saturday. Her calf is now considered ‘a seriously injured dependent calf’ due to its mother’s death. NOAA and various organizations are investigating to determine the cause, which some evidence points to possibly being connected with offshore wind farms. With multiple recent whale deaths, authorities urge prompt reporting of any sightings.
