The annual gray whale migration didn’t get off to a later than usual start this year, although it may have appeared that way to Malibu beachgoers. Instead, the migration pattern appears to have returned to normal after five years of unusually early sightings.
Every winter, gray whales migrate down the Pacific Coast from their arctic feeding grounds to the warm waters of Baja, California, where their calves are born. In spring, they head north again.
