NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALE (Eubalaena glacialis): SPECIES ACCOUNTS

Right and bowhead whales can be found throughout most of the world's oceans and seas. They go farther into the Arctic than many other whales and are capable of breaking through newly formed ice up to 9 inches (23 centimeters) thick. These whales do not generally enter the warmest waters close to the equator.

Right whales and bowhead whales travel long distances and can live in a variety of habitats. They generally find warmer temperatures for birthing along coastal regions and bays. They are capable of traveling far into the polar regions and navigating through icy waters to find krill for feeding.
