Feeding frenzy! In the summer, abundant food sources like anchovies, jellies and plankton attract whales, turtles, birds and other wildlife to Monterey Bay. One way a humpback whale gobbles up this fishy feast is by lunge feeding, or swimming toward the surface with its mouth open and taking a big gulp. It then closes its mouth and pushes the water out through its baleen, swallowing only delicious fish and krill. Stop by the Wildlife Viewing Station on our back deck, where our naturalists can point out the goings on of nearby ocean wildlife.
