The main species of whales migrating to the shores of eastern Kamchatka are: gray whale, humpback whale, sperm whale, northern floats and killer whales. Most gray whales spend the summer in the waters of the Kronotsky and South Kamchatka reserves. Later, they migrate to their native shores of Mexico and America. There they reproduce and rest. In winter, single gray whale can be found near the peninsula. After a period of rest, gray whales in the amount of more than 20,000 individuals swim again to the coasts of the Far East, and 200 of them go to the waters of Kamchatka. Within the water area, whales are monitored by employees of the protected area.
