If you can count, the Los Angeles chapter of the American Cetacean Society wants you.
Every year, volunteers gather at the Pt. Vicente Interpretive Center overlooking the ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes to count the number of gray whales migrating south in the winter and north in the spring. It is part of the Gray Whale Census Project. The information is used by researchers to study the population of gray whales, which had at one time been in danger of extinction.
