The mission of the Right Whale Festival is to celebrate right whales and the beginning of right whale calving season.  The goal is to engage the community and heighten public awareness of both right whales and the importance of the area as the whales make their seasonal return to the waters off FL/GA coast -- the only known North Atlantic right whale calving grounds.  This one-day family festival will feature children’s activities, music, beach cleanup, a beach run, and other activities geared towards informing and inspiring the community about right whales, their habitat, and conservation needs.
