Welcome to Whale Alert - West Coast

Latest News


Endangered whales are needlessly being hit and killed by ship strikes each year along the West Coast of the United States.  Prime collision areas are concentrated around busy shipping lanes in the San Francisco and Channel Islands regions.

The Whale Alert - West Coast program wants to invite you - nature lovers, fishers, and mariners - to help reduce ship strikes to whales:


The success of Whale Alert - West Coast depends on your increased participation and willingness to contribute observations taken while whale watching from land and at sea along the coast.

Whale Alert - West Coast was formed by The Office of the National Marine Sanctuaries, Conserve.IO and Point Blue Conservation Science, working in coordination with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), to help reduce the number of ship collisions with whales. Visit the Whale Alert program to learn more about national efforts.
