Florida captain Robert Holzinger captured rare video of an endangered North Atlantic right whale off the coast of Naples on January 22. The whale was reportedly being tracked by biologists who contacted Captain Mike Bailey, who owns the vessel Holzinger was sailing, after Bailey shared the video on Facebook, according to reports. In 2011, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported that there were around 465 individual right whales in US waters. The number is believed to have increased slightly but the mammals are still critically endangered. Credit: Ms. B. Haven Fishing and Eco-Charters via Storyful
