5 grey #whales wash up #dead in #BritishColumbia, #Canada

Grey whales beached off Boundary Bay

A fifth grey whale has been found dead on British Columbia’s coast in what one research biologist says could be a trend towards of record-setting deaths even as the species does “well” overall.

John Calambokidis of the Cascadia Research Collective based in Olympia, Wash., said Tuesday that 23 grey whales have been found dead this year in his state, and the dead greys are all found along the same migratory route. He said he isn’t involved in studying the whales found dead in Canada.

Those deaths bring the total number of carcasses found along the migration route from California to Alaska up to 70, according to figures from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA.
