The North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium consists of a number of both non-governmental and governmental organizations and individuals in the United States and Canada who work to study and conserve North Atlantic Right Whales. This site was created to provide information to the public on right whale research and conservation.
The initial funding for this site was provided by The Government of Canada Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk. It was originally created by Accesstec Inc. and East Coast Ecosystems Research Organization, with additional contributions by New England Aquarium researchers. It has been updated thanks to funding from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It is currently maintained by the New England Aquarium.
