Description

A mother gray whale and her baby were spotted several times in the San Francisco Bay in early March, 2012.

Scientists believe this early arrival may be attributed to climate change.

“We’re seeing more and more calves born before they get all the way down to Mexico,” said Wayne Perryman, leader of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s cetacean health and life history program at the agency’s office in La Jolla.
