Lisa Hiruki-Raring, the Education Coordinator at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration came today to talk to us about whales. She brought incredible artifacts with her including several baleen plates, vertebrae, teeth, a whale eye, blubber, whale lice (yes, indeed), and even a narwhal's tusk! What a treat! We learned so much from her about environmental impact on whales and how choices we make can affect whales and other marine mammals. We are very grateful to Lisa for spending the afternoon with us and sharing her passion for marine mammals with us!
