My son Tyler has been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. I mean the kid went through a period to where he would growl at people when he was angry. He still does it on occasion now. He loves to watch all the animal shows that he can and he can state facts about animals off the top of his head. So I know he would be absolutely thrilled to attend the upcoming whale exhibit that is being held at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. The name of the exhibit is called Whales: Giants of the Deep. The exhibit opens February 15, 2014. There will be many things to learn about whales. Such as the history of their evolution, how they swim, their mating practices, feeding habits, and how they sometimes get stranded on land. There will also be interactive activities for children. People have been interested in whales for centuries. The whales’ size and beauty are just a few things that have captured the interest of people and sparked the imaginations of people for years. This will give many visitors a chance to answer some of the many questions they have about these beautiful creatures. If you’re interested in seeing some live whales, san diego whale watching is a great experience. A friend recently went there and loved every second of it. There are so many great whale watching places all over the world, if you don’t manage to make your way to San Diego then perhaps California will be the destination for you to explore, whale watching california is fun, exciting, and brilliant to watch these beautiful creatures explore their natural habitats.
The artifacts and other displays come from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. In fact the whole exhibit is their brain child. This museum is known as one of the most innovative museums and they are also known to have a fantastic marine mammal collection. This exhibit reflects the commitment that the museum has to the bicultural partnership between Maorithe countries indigenous people and other New Zealanders. Visitors will have the chance to explore the whales’ underwater home and to learn many things about these magnificent animals. Things such as the different species of whales and how they use sound to communicate and to find food.
Kids will have a chance to do some interactive activities such as climbing through a life-size well and to create their own dolphin. Children and other visitors will also get a chance to see the skeletons of two massive 58 foot long sperm whales. There will also be opportunities to interact with the Whale People of the Pacific and famous Maori Whale Riders and also to view galleries of things made from whale bones and teeth such as treasures, weapons, and ornaments.
