About the Gray Whale Migration Study
(Back to Gray Whale Home Page)
Follow the northward migration of gray whales as they
make their long journey north from California to their feeding grounds in Alaska.
As the gray whales travel up the Pacific Coast, news from our friends at observation
posts all along the way will help narrate their long journey. We hope you'll follow
along and help fill in the gaps with any of your sightings along the whales' way.
Please Help Track Gray Whale Migration
If you're on the West Coast, we hope you'll help provide gray whale migration data
this spring. To track the whales' trip to their northern feeding grounds we are collecting
the following information:
the FIRSTnorthbound Gray Whale you see this spring to Journey North!
- Date of first sighting of northbound gray whales.
- Date of first sighting of northbound gray whale mother/calf pairs.
Obviously, you would need to watch for whales every day to accurately report these
"firsts" of the season. Therefore, we encourage you to contact the captain
of one of the many whale-watch vessels in your area. These people are lucky enough
to be out every day and can provide accurate data for you.
