the only gray whales are found in northern Pacific ocean.
They like reasonably coastal habitat, so there are two different
populations - one in eastern, and one in western Pacific Ocean.
western population, which migrates between Korea (winter breeding
grounds) and Russia's far east (summer feeding grounds), is endangered.
population, which migrates between Alaska (summer feeding grounds) and
Mexico (winter breeding grounds), has the longest known migration route
in all whales.
While migrating, these whales are segregated based
on age, sex and reproductive stage.
They often swim close to the coast
and are therefore easy to spot.
