August: Building Blubber to Last for Months
It's August. Migration and mating are just weeks away, and whales keep feasting

during the months
will expend so much energy on the migration to the Baja lagoons
its blubber. Little or no whale food is available in the breeding grounds,
so this is their time to eat!
