    I'm trying to find out how many Pilot Whales, Belugas and Commerson's Dolphins are currently alive in the United States, where they are, and how many are male and how many are female. Can anyone help?

    There used to be a site that compiled such info,cetabase,however it's temporarily down. For Pilot Whales,SeaWorld Orlando has 4,Ava,Ace,Piper,and Fredi,and SeaWorld San Diego has 2, Argo and Shadow/9Lives. Argo is male,as is Ace,and the rest are female. Those should be the only 2 facilities with Pilot Whales.

    Would you also know the genders of the Pacific white-sided dolphins in the USA. I think they are only in the Mystic, The Shedd and San Antonio?

    Excellent info. It's a long shot but do you also know numbers and genders of belugas in the Ukraine? Kiev and Odessa I believe.
