SF Bay Area: look for single animals or small groups in the bay, especially near high tide as they move through the Golden Gate underneath the bridge.
A very unusual porpoise we discovered in the Bay has bright white skin, which has allowed “citizen scientists” to report their sightings to us, making this animal the one of the most frequently sighted individual porpoises, seen 10 times since April 2011. Visit our Publications page for a copy of the scientific note we wrote about this animal.
