That information can be found at, the website
of the Center for Whale Research on San Juan Island. I would need
to know the time frame you are interested in to know how far to go
back to answer that, and I need my list to be accurate. I can tell
you that the overall population has declined 20% in six years, from
98 total in 1995 to 78 in 2001, but I'm happy to report that two
new calves were born around the first of November and were seen doing
well on November 24.
