It is late spring on Kodiak Island, Alaska, and all eyes are on the horizon for one of nature’s most graceful giants: the gray whale. It is here that they begin and end the longest migration of any mammal. They will travel 12,000 miles from the icy waters of the Arctic to the warm lagoons of Baja, Mexico, and back again. Today, nearly 24,000 gray whales continue their annual migration along the coast of North America giving humans a glimpse of these majestic creatures that live in the deep.
