Dartmouth alumni, families, and friends journeyed to Monterey for an exclusive and educational alumni outing in search of some of the world’s largest mammals and sea creatures. Humpback Whales and Blue Whales migrate to central California waters each year to feed during the summer months. Monterey Bay is a prime feeding location for these whales, and is the best place in the nation to observe a variety of marine mammals and seabirds. The whales often concentrate in a variety of locations within the Bay depending on movements and abundance of the their primary prey — anchovies and krill. Marine biologist, Nancy Black was onboard and has worked with whales and dolphins in the region for over 10 years, and has become an expert in the biology of whales off the California coast.
