It’s a great time to get offshore to deep-water pelagic zones to search out exciting seabirds such as Cook’s Petrels, Scripps’ Murrelets, Black-footed and Laysan Albatross; Black, Leach’s and Ashy Storm-petrels; Brown and other Boobies; South Polar Skua; Pomarine, Parasitic, and Long-tailed Jaegers; and Arctic Terns. Plus we’ll have a long list of usual species found in our waters, often gathering around underwater banks, mounts, and canyons. This trip is limited to ABA-waters, including coverage of the southern-most areas of it.
This is an incredible photo of a gray whale. Happy #GivingTuesday. In case you don’t know or are unaware of Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for the purposes of activism, refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season.
On this #GivingTuesday we are giving back to a few of our favorite foundations and reacher groups. Every little bit can go a long way. If you want to donate here are some we chose to donate to this #GivingTuesday.
