Right whales live in the western North Atlantic (about 300 remaining),
mainly around Gulf of Maine/Bay of Fundy off New England and eastern Canada
in summer, and off Florida and Georgia in winter.

Other right whales live in the North Pacific (only a couple hundred and not
so well known).

About 7,000 right whales (sometimes called "southern right whales") live in
the southern hemisphere, and are found mainly along the coasts of Brazil,
Argentina, Chile, South Africa and Australia.
