There was a rare right whale calf spotted off the coast of Florida.

Off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida a white whale calf was spotted.

Last year no calves were seen off the East Coast.

The population of right whale's are believed to be just about 400, making the species critically endangered.

The US and Brazil added new protections for right whales in the 2000s to address the two primary hazards. While environmental campaigners were, as reported in 2001, pleased about the plan's positive effects, they attempted to force the US government to do more.
