Two more dead gray whales have been found on Kodiak’s shores, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. NOAA Fisheries confirmed that a total of seven dead whales have now been reported in Alaska so far this year. 

In early June NOAA declared an “unusual mortality event,” due to the large number of gray whale deaths, triggering an investigation to determine the cause. The eastern North Pacific gray whale population that migrates from Mexico along the Pacific Coast up to its feeding ground in the Arctic every summer was last estimated at about 27,000.
