(NatureWorldNews.com) – Two North Atlantic right whale calves were recently born–of these, a mother/baby pair was sighted off the Georgia coast; another pair was seen off Florida, according to an article by Mary Landers in the Savannah Morning News.

It is the first right whale sightings in the current calving season for this endangered species, whose members can live to be more than 50 years old.

The Georgia coast whale, called Harmony, was seen with her calf about 10 miles east of Jekyll Island last week, said a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission crew doing aerial surveys.

They also saw the other mother and calf near St. Augustine, Florida, not far off Ponte Vedra, on the same day, noted the SMN article.
