Entangled gray whale is heading up the coast of California. Last known sighting of this gray whale was on Tuesday, April 24 South of Gorda, California heading north close to shore. At that time the animal had 2 white poly balls and one red poly ball trailing that were attached in Southern California to help sight the animal.
Extensive efforts over the past few days have yielded no sighting of the entangled whale. This has increased concern that the whale may have expired. Going forward, searching will continue by various whale watching boats and a couple of marine mammal research projects working in the area including Marine Life Studies research project.

Our new Plastic Police Initiative Take It To The Streets™ project was a huge success! The children at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, both Salinas and Seaside Units learned how land based litter affects their local watersheds and ultimately ends up in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
