Fun with Whales

Posted by | April 17, 2013

Children and adults alike learned lots about whales this morning with educator Tony Viehmann during the "Making Friends with Whales & Dolphins" school vacation week offering. On hand were tons of artifacts, too, including whale oil, vertebrae, an ear bone, baleen, teeth, skulls, and more! We listened to whale songs, played whale/squid hide and seek, and explored the lengths of marine mammals outdoors. Below are photos of Tony demonstrating the use of a whale harpoon, and the group observing the length of a sperm whale--about 70 feet!
