San Francisco Bay Area Minke Whale Project


Welcome one and all to the Bay Area Minke Whale Project Website...(a companion project to our San Juan Island Minke Whale Project.). Both projects are under the umbrella of the MINKE WHALE FOUNDATION, a non-profit organization

The project goal is to understand the ecological role of minke whales in the context of Central and Northern California marine ecosystem(s). All photographs are taken under either Marine Mammal Research Permits, or Letters of Authorization issued by the National Marine Fisheries Service under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
