    Order Cetacea Whales belong to the order cetacea, which includes whales, dolphins and porpoises. Whales are divided into two suborders: baleen and toothed whales. Baleen whales have a comb-like fringe, called a baleen, on the upper jaw, which is used to filter plankton, as well as small fish and crustaceans. They are the largest species of whale. Toothed whales have teeth and prey on fish, squid, other whales and marine mammals. They sense their surrounding environment through echolocation. Like all mammals, whales breathe air into lungs, are warm-blooded, feed their young milk and have some (although very little) hair. Their bodies resemble the streamlined form of a fish, while the forelimbs or flippers are paddle-shaped. The tail fins, or flukes, enable whales to propel themselves through the water. Most species of whale have a fin on their backs known as a dorsal fin.

Whale Watching at Point Reyes Click on the following links to find out more about viewing opportunities for these species and to learn about their habitats and behaviors: Birds Coho Salmon Elephant Seals Tule Elk Whales Whale Watchers at Point Reyes Engaging in the longest migration of any mammal, the California gray whale ( Eschrichtius robustus ) swims 16,000 kilometers (10,000 miles) each year, spending about one third of its life migrating from the cold, nutrient-rich waters of Alaska, to the warm, shallow lagoons of Baja California. Along the way, these incredible animals can often be seen from the shores of Point Reyes. What drives the gray whale to undertake this incredible annual round trip from Alaska to Baja? Food and reproduction. Jutting 16 kilometers (10 miles) into the Pacific Ocean, the headlands of the Point Reyes Peninsula offer one of the finest spots to view the gray whale. The Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary provides a 32-kilometer (20-mile) wide "highway" along which the whales cruise; sometimes they travel in the close lane (nearer to shore), and sometimes they travel in the far lane (farther out to sea). The areas around Chimney Rock and the Lighthouse offer some of the best whale watching spots in the park.

Ocean Alliance, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 1971 by biologist Roger Payne. Led by Dr. Payne and Chief Executive Officer Iain Kerr, Ocean Alliance collects a broad spectrum of data on whales and ocean life relating particularly to toxicology, behavior, bioacoustics, and genetics. From that data we work with our scientific partners to advise educators and policy makers on wise stewardship of the oceans to: reduce pollution, prevent the collapse of marine mammal populations, maintain human access to fish and other sea life, and benefit ocean and human health.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Most days, Moko the bottlenosed dolphin swims playfully with humans at a New Zealand beach. But this week, it seems, Moko found his mojo. Witnesses described Wednesday how they saw the dolphin swim up to two stranded whales and guide them to safety. Before Moko arrived, rescue workers had been working for more than an hour to get two pygmy sperm whales, a mother and her calf, back out to sea after they were stranded Monday off Mahia Beach, said Conservation Department worker Malcolm Smith. But Smith said the whales restranded themselves four times on a sandbar slightly out to sea from the beach, about 300 miles northeast of the capital, Wellington. It looked likely they would have to be euthanized to prevent a prolonged death, he said. 'Disorientated'
"They kept getting disorientated and stranding again," said Smith, who was among the rescuers. "They obviously couldn't find their way back past (the sandbar) to the sea."

    biology guide lines sounds video clips ... 2006 season Newsletter The Minke Whale Project is a combined initiative of James Cook University, the Museum of Tropical Queensland and Undersea Explorer.
    Public research information on this website was obtained from the
    Museum of Tropical Queensland, Dr Alastair Birtles (Chief Investigator, CRC Reef and James Cook University), and research vessel Undersea Explorer. Dwarf minke whales were first recognised as a distinct form in the mid 1980s and there is still little known about them. They attracted attention in northern Great Barrier Reef waters because they regularly approached close to boats and swimmers. While many countries have banned programs where visitors can swim with whales, a swim with whales industry has developed in waters of the northern Great Barrier Reef based on the voluntary approaches of dwarf minke whales.
    To ensure the encounters have a minimal impact on the whales, research is being focused on learning more about the dwarf minke whales and their interactions with swimmers.

      Stranded? Try Me March 12, 2008 A dolphin guided two stranded whales to safety after human attempts to keep the animals off a New Zealand beach failed, a conservation official said Wednesday. "I've never heard of anything like this before, it was amazing," Conservation Department officer Malcolm Smith said. The actions of the dolphin, well known locally for playing with swimmers at Mahia beach on the east coast of the North Island, probably meant the difference between life and death for the whales, Smith said. Smith had been working for over an hour and a half to save the two pygmy sperm whales which had repeatedly become stranded despite his attempts to push them back out to sea. A bottlenose dolphin , named Moko by locals, appeared and guided the whales to safety after apparently communicating with them, Smith said.

    More on the music page
    The entire "Family of Saxophones" is featured - the tiny sopranino, the soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass and the rare and monstrous 6'8" contrabass (described by The Los Angeles Times as " instrument with the stature of a power forward in the NBA and a pitch that makes a foghorn sound effeminate.") Together they create incredibly innovative music with a rich ensemble sound covering an amazing range of over six octaves. The NUCLEAR WHALES repertoire includes classical, jazz, swing, and a plethora of original works as well as a tribute to the ocean's whales which inspired the Orchestra's name. From Bach, Mozart, and Strauss to Ellington, Gershwin and Sousa, the WHALES leave no musical genre unexplored.
    What the Critics are saying "The all-sax sextet bobbed and weaved, jumped and swung, through a superbly constructed and choreographed show that left crowds standing and cheering. This is a marvelously talented and entertaining group."
