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:
Report 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.
