Humpback Whale Tail

 

ON DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE ZOO  May 24-September 30

HUGO THE HUMPBACK WHALE TAIL

Humpback whales swim through every ocean in the world. They can grow up to 50 feet and adults can weigh 40 tons. These giants of the deep are an iconic animal for many people who love the ocean, but not long ago they were an endangered species. Hunted to the brink of extinction by whalers, this species now represents one of the most successful comeback stories in the ocean and their numbers continue to increase. In order to ensure these whales repopulate the oceans they once roamed, it is our responsibility to ensure their environment is free from another man-made threat, our trash.

YOUR CHOICES MATTER

By reducing the plastic in our own lives, we can reduce the plastic in our oceans and waterways. Purchase local sustainable products to avoid unnecessary plastic packaging and resources used in shipping.

Rethink the products you buy and select items made of paper, cotton, glass, metal, or other materials that don’t have any chance of becoming part of the plastic pollution problem.
