This week, our field staff reported a few especially interesting wildlife sightings, both in terms of species and in terms of behavior. Case in point: two incredible wildlife encounters in Baja California: at Isla Magdalena, a sea lion decided to hitch a ride on National Geographic Sea Bird; and near Loreto, a fantastic blue whale sighting turned into a unique blue whale fluke sighting. But as you'll see in this week's photos, all of our expeditions promise ample opportunities to witness a wide range of animal behaviors: squabbling over food, caring for babies, getting curious about strange visitors.  Get Inspired By Photos, Videos, Webinars, Stories, And Exclusive Offers.
