Gray Whale Census: Feb. 18, 2011

As expected based on the cooling trend in the water and abundance of food in the Pacific Ocean---a "La Nina" trend.....we are experiencing one of the largest Gray Whale Migrations we have seen on record since 1997 when we began taking census data. This is quite amazing and i can tell you that it is pure eye candy to see so many whales.

Census: Feb. 18, 2011
Adult Gray Whales:  170
Gray Whale Calves:  114
Total Gray Whales:   284
