MCB Hawaii hosts whale count volunteers

Volunteers and site leaders watch for whales for the 2014 Sanctuary Ocean Count project at Pyramid Rock Beach, Feb. 22, 2014. On Oahu, there are more than 20 different sites designated for whale counting. Two sites are aboard MCB Hawaii: Atop the Coast Guard-owned tower at Pyramid Rock Beach and at Mokapu Point near Kaneohe Bay Range Training Facility, both restricted areas. The annual Sanctuary Ocean Count project, coordinated through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, monitors the endangered humpback whale, which migrates to Hawaii between November and April. The counts occur during the last Saturday in January, February and March, which NOAA considers the season’s peak. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Kristen Wong)
