PROVINCETOWN (CBS) – Dozens of endangered whales are taking up residence in Cape Cod Bay.
Officials are planning an aerial survey in the next few days to get a more accurate number.
Right whales typically show up every spring in the waters off of Cape Cod to feed.
The state has issued a warning for boaters in the area to use extreme caution.
It’s against the law for boaters to approach within 500 yards of a right whale.
The Right Whale is the most endangered in the North Atlantic.
Only about 450 remain in the entire ocean.
