Right Whale Beached in Outer Banks

AVON, N.C. - Rescuers are trying to save a stranded Northern Right Whale calf that washed up on the beach in Avon, North Carolina Tuesday.

Right Whales are the most critically endangered whales. Only about 350 to 400 exist.

Because the whale is so rare, federal officials are on the scene working with members of the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Team.
