North Atlantic Right Whale: Stay 500 Yards Away!
Partners: National Marine Fisheries Service
Produced by: National Marine Fisheries Service


A 60 second public service announcement reminds boaters in Florida and Georgia that endangered right whales share the same waters and need your cooperation to survive. Mothers and calves can become separated if approached, and this can have grave results. Please stay 500 yards away from right whales.
