California Gray whale calf (Eschrichtius robustus) surfacing - note the sensory hairs in each pit on the rostrum - in San Ignacio Lagoon on the Pacific Ocean side of the Baja Peninsula, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Each winter thousands of California gray whales migrate from the Bering and Chukchi seas to breed and calf in the warm water lagoons of Baja California. San Ignacio lagoon is the smallest of the three major such lagoons. Current (2008) population estimates put the California Gray wh at between 20,000 and 24,000 animals.
