6:30 pm
we investigate who is to blame. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: whale watching in the san francisco bay might be one of the greatest shows on earth. many of the whales off the california coast are endangered, and one of their biggest threats is the steady flow of massive ships moving in and out of the bay that can unknowingly hit and kill whales. >> this is a threat. it is not evolved to deal with something moving this fast. >> reporter: he has spent 30 years studying whales and their baf bafrs along the west coast. he and his team are with the nonprofit group cascadia research. they travel and attach tags to the back of whales. those tags have cameras providing an almost unreal glimpse into the deep sea, all from the whale's perspective. not only may it not be obvious if ships hit a whale, but if
6:31 pm
they do hit it they are required to report it by federal law. >> most whales that die disappear from sight and sink. >> reporter: we obtained the records and crunched the numbers. according to the federal government ships have hit and killed at least 45 whales off the california coast since 2005. 173 whales were killed in waters throughout the entire u.s., and we discovered at least 75% of those whales were endangered. >> the numbers of ships strikes documenting, while being concerning, is probably less than a tenth of the true number. that means the number could be ten times higher. yes, i would say at least ten times higher if not more than that. >> reporter: that's hundreds of whales killed off the california coast in the last decade. >> last year we had 15 in the bay area. >> reporter: lauren flannery is with california academy of sciences, and when dead whales wash up on shore she is called mr. to investigate and determine if a ship may have hit the
6:32 pm
whale. >> we will look at ribs and vertebrae and see if there are broken bones. >> reporter: is it always clear whether a whale was killed by a ship strike? >> majority of the time we do not know the cause of death. >> reporter: ports in the bay are some of the busiest in the country much ships pass in and out of the area about 10,000 times a year. container vessels and large cargo ships enter the bay using any of three shipping lanes, which also happen to intersect with pry feeding areas for whales. to find out more we headed off the coast with scientists from the federal government and point blue conservation group. they're collecting data on whale populations in and around the bay. got. >> reporter: including this group of blue whales, the largest animals to have ever lived on earth. >> we spotted that pod just a few miles away from the shipping lanes that flow directly into the san francisco bay. >> reporter: to minimize the threat against whales in those shipping lanes the federal
6:33 pm
started issuing a voluntary slow down of 10 knots during peak whale season. data we obtained showed ships traveled faster than that 81% of the time. >> nobody wants to hit a whale. >> reporter: john berg is with the pacific merchant shipping o which represents bargained cargo companies that pass through the bay. >> some of the ships traveled at speeds more than double what was recommended. how do you justify that? >> only want to reduce the risk of hitting a whale, but at the same time a lot of these ships are on strict time schedules. you can't just adjust the crew's shifts. you have fixed times. >> but the federal government says unless ships comply that voluntary slow down could become permanent, which would carry hefty fines. >> we would like the shipping industry to work more with us. >> reporter: maria brown is with noaa. >> reporter: so if the shipping industry isn't playing nice now, there's a potential you could
6:34 pm
force them later down the line? >> there's a potential we would have to make a requirement. >> reporter: but he says there's a better option. rather than reducing all shipping lanes, only require a slow down on one at a time based on which has the largest concentration of whales. the federal government said it tried that plan but realized it didn't have the manpower to track whales full time. >> the missing piece for the plan was statapping the industr ships themselves and turning them into platforms f for sighting. >> so ships could track the whales so other vessels could avoid them, but he understands why some may not be ready to dive in. does it make sense to make one shipping lane slower if whales might not be traveling in that shipping lane the next day? >> no plan is going to create a total separation. all we can do is reduce the odds. >> that voluntary slow down is back again this year, actually

and natalie. >> speaking of which, natalie coggin is here. she has been our in-studio analyst through the olympic. we are talking about it is great watching the olympic with natalie because she knows more than we do. >> you have such insight. >> thank you, i try. >> track and field this week is the big thing, and we're talking about the photo finish, allyson felix grabbing silver because she was edged out by the lady from bahamas. >> is it part of the game or something that maybe shouldn't be doing? it is a big debate everyone is having. >> it is a big debate. in track and field it is an unwritten rule, you know, you don't dive for the finish but it is within the rules. so, you know, you're traveling at your fastest speed when you're actually running, but a well-timed lean will give you a slight advantage. i don't know how you would ever plan for this because if you do it a little too early you're going to face plant and not even cross the finish. so, i mean, it is heartbreaking for allyson felix, but she is the most-decorated american

got angry with one another? i wouldn't. i've been there. they have the best display of sportsmanship i have ever seen. it is wonderful. >> you're competitors but also like family. you've been through the same grueling process to train for these games, so you know what it is like. >> right. >> you're in it together. >> they're literally carrying each other to the finish and hugging and crying. it is such a wonderful moment. >> what do you do when you're waiting for your event to happen if you're team usa basketball, what do you do? you kind of hang out at copacabana beach as kevin durant and the warriors? >> who is maverick and who is goose? what is it between your events. >> we certainly didn't play beach volleyball. swimmers, we avoid going upstairs as much as possible, we stay off of our feet. you know, the basketball team, this is amazing because clearly they're having fun. those are some of the most athletic humans on the court, but then on the beach they're not nearly as good as usa volleyball. >> thank you, natalie.
