Observation Post #8
Point Piedras Blancas, California, United States
whale mothers with their new calves pass this area from late
March to late May. Biologist Wayne Perryman (with National
Marine Fisheries Service) leads a team that counts the
mothers and calves north that pass
Point Piedras Blancas on the calves' first journey north.
The cows and calves are the last whales
to leave the warm lagoons in Mexico and swim north. A team
watches 12 hours a day, six days a week during Mr. Perryman's
official yearly cow/calf count.
