Whales and Their Offspring in San Ignacio Lagoon

Season 10 Episode 1006 | 26m 46s

For millennia, gray whales have made an annual pilgrimage from the Gulf of Alaska to the protected waters of San Ignacio Lagoon, where the mother whales feel safe from predators, give birth to calves and urge the newborn giants to make contact with humans. The Mexican government, boatmen and fishermen guard the whales and nurture the friendship between people and the gentle leviathans.
