"Strong northwest winds have been pushing up cold, nutrient-rich waters from the ocean bottom - a phenomenon known as upwelling. That has fueled blooms of phytoplankton that have led to an explosion of krill, the main food source of blue and humpback whales."

It is a surprise to me that the California beaches and marinas aren't being lined with "Save the Krill" protesters from PETA or some such org.

We’ve seen them this summer. If you go to the Point Vicente Interpretive Center on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, they will loan you some binoculars, and the locals will point them out to you. It can be difficult to spot them, though, because you are looking for brief spouts across 26 miles of ocean (between PV and Catalina Island).

If you stick a whale listening device into the water there, you will hear something like this:

“Jerry Brown! Jerry Brown! Please, save us! Save the Whales, Jerry Brown!”

They want amnesty and free food, they contend they went to school here.

They evidently don’t know California is endangered.
