Whale Ribcage

 

ON DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE ZOO  May 24-September 30

WHALE RIBCAGE

Whales are magnificent and intelligent creatures.  Humans have drastically reduced populations, first by hunting and more recently by polluting their waters.  A gray whale found dead on the coast of Washington had plastic bags, towels, surgical gloves, sweat pants, duct tape, fishing line and a golf ball in its stomach. We are just beginning to understand what we can learn from these amazing animals. Let’s give them a chance to teach us by keeping their environment clean.

Can you find these marine debris items in this sculpture?

  • bucket lids
  • bleach bottles
  • buoys
  • hard hats
  • soap bottles
  • bait traps

If you can’t you’d better plan a visit to the Zoo today to see these amazing sculptures in person!

You can purchase Zoo Admission tickets online!
