Episode Summary

The Gray Whale Obstacle Course
There is no whale on earth like the Gray Whale. It is the whale with the longest migration route and the most urban whale, passing some of the world's busiest cities and ports, along some of the most polluted coastlines. The only large whale to be studied in captivity, and it is the least changed for over 600,000 years. Yet, it is also one of the first to face extinction. The gray whale is the only whale removed from the endangered species list, then almost loved to death! Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team of young divers and scientists follow the annual migration of these traveling giants from Baja to the Arctic to investigate clues to a sudden decrease of population among the gray whale and to examine the less visible and more ominous obstacles these unique whales face in their struggle to survive. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan.moreless
