the Gray Whale Migration Study
Whale Migration Route
(Click on map to enlarge for more information)
Each year, gray whales travel a longer migratory journey than any other
mammal. The roundtrip journey between their frigid arctic feeding grounds
and the warm Mexican birthing lagoons adds up to more than 10,000 miles!
Journey North follows the spring migration of gray whales from their nursery
lagoons in Baja California to their summer feeding grounds in Alaska.
News from our observers at outposts along the way will help narrate the
long journey of these gentle giants and their new babies up the Pacific
Gray Whale Migration
If you're on the West
Coast, we hope you'll help provide gray whale migration data this spring.
To help us track the whales' trip to their northern feeding grounds, we
ask observers to report the following information:
of first sighting of northbound gray whales.
Report the FIRSTnorthbound Gray Whale you
see this spring—and the FIRST northbound mother/calf pair
to Journey North!
of first sighting of northbound gray whale mother/calf pairs.
