Researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) / Southwest Fisheries Research Center (SWFRC) have been studying the migration of Gray Whales along the west coast of North America for years. Understanding how and why these large cetaceans make these epic journeys will help scientists to better understand and protect the species. This exploration will take you to the frontier of research through blogs, photo features, videos and more provided in part by the scientists involved.
Have A Question? You can submit questions to the NOAA scientists via email during the duration of this mission, April 20 to May 1, 2015.
