From Mexico to the Arctic, gray whales have one of the longest migrations of any mammal on earth. The whales’ 5,000-mile journey is documented by scientists and other trained observers who are based at Observation Posts along the migration route. In this activity, students learn about gray whale migration by way of a treasure hunt as they explore these three components:
- Interactive Migration Route Map
- Facts about the Observation Posts
- Field Notes from the Observation Posts
