Monterey Bay is known as the Serengeti of the Sea. It is an ecosystem like no other. While on a research survey trip, we ran into a pod of Offshore Killer Whales with a couple of newborn calves. This ecotype is rarely seen in the bay and it was quite a thrill.
This photo was taken during a research survey with Monterey Bay Marine Life Studies (MarineLifeStudies.org/NMFS permit #20519). 100% of proceeds from the sale of this photo will go directly to that organization.
