Artist's Description

California gray whales have been brought to the edge of extinction by commercial whaling activities twice in recent history; first in the 1850’s and then again at the turn of the 20th century. Today these whales are protected by the three countries whose waters they inhabited during their long migrations (Canada, the U.S., and Mexico). The population has rebounded and encounters like this aren’t at all rare as newborn calves will literally seek out human contact in the warm water lagoons of Baja, Mexico. Looking into the eye of a whale and seeing intelligence and curiosity looking back…have they forgotten how we have treated them in the past, or just forgiven us?
