Since February and March of 1995, annual photo ID and surface behavior field work conducted in the Sea of Cortez near to Loreto, with a special emphasis on the endangered Blue Whale. Hundreds of photo ID’s shared and included in research catalogs. 50% of individuals photo ID’d in Loreto inhabit the Port of LA and Santa Barbara Channel July to October, where dangerous cargo shipping lanes now cut through critical feeding habitat.

A small public is invited to attend for a research vacation with us in Loreto, helping to fund the project.
