Gray Whale Calf Production Survey Begins

Last week marked the beginning of the shore-based survey of northbound gray whale calves from the Piedras Blancas Light Station. Weather was generally very good all week and the observers performed 57 hrs of search effort. Sightings included 4 calves and 57 other adults and juveniles. This calf count is about average for the first week of April.
