Hi My name is Alison I am a retired nurse and I have a deep passion for watching the whales on their northern migration to Alaska. I am using my nursing skills to observe and document my findings. Michael Smith of the Gray Whale Count in Goleta was my inspiration for starting this journey. On my blog you will also find images of birds and other wildlife plus a list of my favorite places found along the way.
My mission is to contribute the data I collect to the broader cetacean community for the purpose of increased knowledge about the gray whale behaviors along the migration route.
My goal is to photograph the whales as they pass along the Pt. Dume Marine Sanctuary and other areas along the California coast.
In the future, souvenir items featuring my photographs and graphic designs will be for sale with a percentage donated back to a charity (to be determined) which focuses on research and education about the gray whales.
