With the response from the NOAA West Coast Stranding Network and some initial observations, it looks like the whale died from blunt force trauma and suffered internal injuries.

Like I have been mentioning in the last few blogs, we are counting more southbound whales than ever which raises the question; why? Are there actually greater numbers heading south or are we just seeing greater numbers off the coast during the annual gray whale census?

There has certainly been quite a buzz around the area about our recent killer whale sightings! As mentioned briefly in the last blog, we did have a sighting last month on November 25th of about seven of the ETP (Eastern Tropical Pacific) killer whales. These are whales that are super rare for our waters from the Mexico and Central America area. After this sighting, which included a lot of great activity, they traveled further north.
