     Zac,
     
     It's going to depend on what whale species as to where they migrate 
     to.  For example, a North Pacific humpback whale is found in Alaskan 
     waters during the summer feeding, but can be found in the winter in 
     Hawaiian, Japanese, or Mexican waters.  A California gray whale is 
     found in Alaskan/Bering Sea waters during summer and in the Mexican 
     lagoons during winter to calve.  A North Atlantic humpback whale is 
     found in northeastern waters during the summer feeding, and can be 
     found in the Caribbean during winter to calve.  In the Southern 
     Hemisphere, because the seasons are reversed compared to the Northern 
     Hemisphere, you'd find the opposite type of migration.
     
     Hope this helps.

Dear Sirs;
     
        I am working on a science project and need to know where 
 to find information about where each kind of whales migrate to.Can you
help me find this information. 
   thank you very much Zac Robason.
