ECOLOGY OF BAJA
Gray whales (Eschrichtius robustus) undertake one of the longest migration of any mammal, traveling over 10-12,000 miles round-trip between feeding grounds in Northern Waters and mating and birthing lagoons of Baja, Mexico.
Once known as devil-fish as they fought back when whalers attacked, their population has rebounded to the point where they have been removed from the Endangered Species Act. “Friendly” gray whales will now even approach people in the Baja lagoons, apparently as curious about us as we are of them.
