The North Atlantic right whale is an endangered species – its total population is only in the hundreds. While no longer a target of whaling, right whales are still threatened from being struck by ships and becoming entangled in commercial fishing gear. The sixth annual Right Whale Festival, intended to increase awareness of these docile creatures as they calve every winter off our coast, features a 5K race/2.5K fun run, live music by DANKA, Split Tone and The Crazy Daysies, speakers and information displays, a silent auction and food trucks.
