Update on Gray Whale Satellite Tagging in the Western Pacific


The gray whale last reported on this website in February 2012 as having reached the Mexican breeding lagoons was continuing to transmit location data more than one year after being tagged off Sakhalin Island, Russia in September 2011. She had returned to Sakhalin in the spring and remained there throughout the summer and until at least mid-October.
