Grey Whales and Dolphins feeding

 

This picture shows how the Grey Whales have made an amazing recovery since the ban on Whaling was introduced and now only have to run the gauntlet of killer whales in their migration from the Artic to the Baja Penninsula off Mexico each year.There is some debate as to whether they feed while in the lagoons where they calve and I have painted them indeed feeding while there. They are bottom feeders and scoop up large amounts from the sea bed and filter it to glean small crustaceans and other food through their baleen. A large eco tourism has evolved to allow people to have close encounters with these wonderful creatures, WDS should have lists of ones working within sustainable guidleines.
