Oregon: A whale of a vacation
'A world-class natural phenomenon'
CNN Wednesday, January 22, 2003 Posted: 11:36 AM EST (1636 GMT)
Oregon (AP) -- Bundled up against the wind and rain, Joan Lynch
leaned against the fender of her pickup truck to steady herself and
trained her binoculars on the Pacific Ocean in hopes of spotting a
heart-shaped spout or a flash of flukes from a passing gray whale.
"There's a spout almost all the way out," she said in measured tones
from her vantage high on Cape Ferrelo, and immediately conversation
stopped and four pairs of binoculars focused on the horizon. "Somebody
says 'Spout!' and everybody stops talking and starts concentrating."
By an accident of nature, thousands of gray whale families migrate
past the Oregon Coast each year on their annual 5,000-mile trek from
the Bering Sea to Baja California just when human families are
enjoying their Christmas vacation from school. The whales return north
during spring break.
For 25 years, a network of volunteers like Lynch and her husband, Bob,
has taken up their assigned posts on cold, rainy, wind-whipped
headlands and in cozy, dry, beachfront resorts up and down the coast
to take advantage of that happy coincidence to spread the word.
"It's a world-class natural phenomenon you might have missed just for
lack of a knowledgeable person pointing in the right direction," said
Mike Rivers from his office in Newport, where he coordinates more than
200 volunteers in the Whale Watching Spoken Here program for the
Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
"You get this feeling for the excitement of the migration," said
Rivers. "They're going to Mexico. They're not bothering to stop or
say, 'Hi!' They're going where the water is a little bit warmer and
they'll mate and have babies, like they have their whole lives. This
whole phenomenon is going on that is just awesome!"
40,000 people in two weeks
The volunteer effort was the brainchild of the late Don Giles, a Sea
Grant extension specialist at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in
Newport. He noticed the migration-vacation connection in research on
gray whale migrations by Oregon State University professor Bruce Mate.
"It's just phenomenal how many people, usually about 40,000
individuals, the program touches," said Mate. "Typically, they are
reaching people from most states in the union, and very typically
three dozen foreign countries.
The gray whale is one of just seven species ever taken off the
Endangered Species List. That happened in 1994, 59 years after they
were protected from commercial whaling, first by the League of Nations
and then by the International Whaling Commission.
'There's a mystery to them'
On Cape Ferrelo, Joan and Bob Lynch ignored the wind and rain as they
trained their binoculars on the ocean for the telltale heart-shaped
spout, formed because gray whales have two blow holes. As many as 30
whales per hour will swim by.
Both retired -- he's the former sheriff of Hood River County and she's
a former teacher -- they are in their 13th season as whale watching
volunteers living out of their fifth-wheel trailer.
"They're big and they're beautiful," Bob Lynch said of the whales that
keep him coming back.
"And there's a mystery to them," added his wife. "There's so much we
don't know."
"One o'clock, there's a blow!" interjected Linda Carpenter, a computer
technician vacationing from Foster City, California. All talking
stopped and binoculars were trained on the ocean.
"Sleep in, watch the whales, then take the rest of the day off,"
Carpenter said of her vacation routine. "When you see them come out of
the water and breech, it makes it worthwhile for a couple hours of
doing nothing."
