Join us to celebrate the endangered North Atlantic right whale. Hear from right whale experts and view art from local students and artists.
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 9, 6pm-8pm
Exhibition on display through May 22.
at Seacoast Science Center
Each summer, North Atlantic right whales swim right off the coast of New Hampshire. They socialize together at the water’s surface, and mothers – who form strong bonds with their calves – speak with their young in low whispering tones.
Tragically, there are only about 400 right whales left, and their numbers are sinking. Without strong action, these gentle, social creatures will go extinct.
Join us for the opening reception of the Right Whale Road Show and learn about this majestic species through artwork from local students and artists. You’ll stories from right whale experts, and we’ll even show you how you can take action to protect these incredible whales.
