Whales: Giants of the Deep (Grades 1 and 2)

September 22, 29, and October 6


Whales are magnificent organisms! Explore the extraordinary adaptations whales have developed to survive in their watery environments, and why they are so important to the ocean ecosystems where they live. Go into the Museum’s halls and meet scientists to learn why whale populations have been declining, what protections humans have put in place, and how some whale species have recovered because of these protections.
