More Gray Whales Off California Coast This Year!

The Gray Whale Census and Behavior Project counted 368 gray whales last month -- breaking the December 2012 record of 182.Gray whales were hunted to near-extinction by the early 1900s but rebounded after they were declared endangered in 1973. They did so well that they were de-listed in 1994. So positive to see this happening. Article in NBC Bay Area News. 

US West Coast and California is doing well keeping this beautiful animal! After seeing the extinction hole of the Gray Whales in the Atlantic Ocean on a whale watching expedition, it is reassuring to see the Gray Whale thriving here on the Pacific Coast of California!
