• Counting the gray whales that swim past us

    A veteran gray whale counter for the American Cetacean Society will talk to the society’s Monterey Bay Chapter in Pacific Grove on Thursday, April 30. Alisa Schulman-Janiger, who has directed the Los Angeles Chapter’s gray whale census project for the past 31 years, will outline the latest developments and trends.

    Among other things, many of female gray whales now deliver their calves in the open ocean while migrating from the Alaska feeding area to Mexico, where they usually gave birth and bred.

    The program is free and open to the public. It is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Boat Works building at Hopkins Marine Station, 120 Ocean View Blvd. More information can be found on the cetacean society’s Web site at www.acsmb.org.
