Doing their best imitation of the toothy orcas and hungry humpbacks who travel here to snack other marine mammals and krill, respectively, dolphin and whale lovers from around the world descend upon Monterey Bay with a different appetite. These bipeds come to feed on a weekend full of events, panels and symposiums highlighted by a whale-watching field trip on Thursday and a expert-laden Gray Whale and Climate Change Symposium Monday and a pod of activities in between.
