The number of gray whales migrating past Palos Verdes Peninsula inSouthern
California during the month of December was 73.  This compares with 65 for
the same month in 1994.  The census station is located at Point Vicente
Interpretive Center, near the Point Vicente lighthouse.
 
The census station is operated 10-11 hours daily by volunteers working in
shifts.  Compass bearings and distances are recorded at least three times for
each whale or pod.  Sightings of dolphins, common, bottle-nose, Risso's and
white-sided along with estimates of numbers are noted.  Other whales
including orcas, sperm, Minke and hump-backed are noted but sightings are
rare.
 
For addition information see 3 Nov 1995 Gray Whale Census by
HugeRhino@aol.com by Hugh T. Ryono.  Contact me, Clyde B. Lambert (LambertCB
@aol) for further information.  We would like to exchange information with
other census stations along the west who are following the migration of gray
whales.
 
Thanks.        Clyde Lambert
