In Changing Climate, Endangered Right Whales Find New Feeding Grounds

"Amy Knowlton pilots the 29-foot research vessel Nereid out of Lubec harbor and into the waters of the Bay of Fundy, off of easternmost Maine. A scientist with the New England Aquarium's Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life Knowlton points to harbor porpoises chasing fish in the wind-swept waters on a recent morning."

"Then something much larger appears off the stern."

"'Whale behind us,' Knowlton says, steering closer. 'It's probably a humpback or fin whale, we'll get a better look.'"

"It turns out to be two humpback whales — a cool sighting, but not the kind she is after."
