Scientists recently compared the waters off California to Africa’s Serengeti Plain, famous for its abundance of wildlife. The California Current eco-system is home to many species. Scientists tagged and tracked more than 4,000 animals and found that the Current is very important to the ocean’s top predators, such as sharks and whales.
