National Marine Sanctuary Ocean Count site leaders Toni Todino and Crystal Malone kept a lookout for humpback whales at Diamond Head yesterday. Volunteers collected data from 63 sites on the shores of Oahu, Kauai, the Big Island and Kahoolawe as part of the annual tally of humpback whale sightings. The average overall count for the four islands was four whales. The whales migrate 3,000 miles from Alaska to Hawaii from October to May to mate, birth and nurse their calves in waters off the islands. Ocean Counts take place on the last Saturday of January, February and March.
