Aerial team searches for right whales

Scientists from the New York-based Wildlife Trust are back and flying over South Carolina's coast, searching for right whales. Last year the State Ports Authority began its $1 million, five-year partnership with the international conservation group. The agency renewed that commitment with its second installment of up to $200,000 this year, it was announced Monday.
