For a limited time, the entire skeleton of CRC-1524, a gray whale that died in 2016, is on view at Flagship Landing in the PTMSC gallery. Volunteers and staff have been preparing the skeleton for articulation, as well as the skeleton of a northern elephant seal which is being prepared for classroom use at area schools.
Both animals came to PTMSC as a result of stranding events to which PTMSC responded as part of the NOAA's Marine Mammal Stranding Network, and thanks to NOAA Fisheries, PTMSC is allowed to use the skeletons for educational purposes.
Volunteers will be on hand to share information about these remarkable marine mammals and their lives in the Salish Sea on Thursdays - Saturdays from 1-3:30pm.
More information about the gray whale, CRC-1524, can be found on our website at: ptmsc.org/graywhale.
This exhibit is at the gallery through October 29, 2022, on Thursdays - Saturdays from 1:00 - 3:30 p.m.
