California wildlife has been offering a lot of surprises lately. Humpback whales have been wowing onlookers along the San Francisco Bay with their spectacular leaps. Several gray wolves have been seen along the Oregon border and California's only known wild wolverine was spotted in the Tahoe National Forest. Naturalist and adventure travel guide Michael Ellis joins Forum to talk about natural happenings, local and global.
