The Aquarium is organizing an outdoor festival with a group of young whale scientists from Adams Elementary School in Castine, Maine. The students call themselves the Calvineers after a famous right whale orphan named Calvin.
This exciting festival will give families an opportunity to learn about North Atlantic right whales, meet right whale scientists and participate in fun activities and learn about whale conservation.
The Festival will take place at the New England Aquarium's Harbor View Terrace Tent, rain or shine. The event is free to the public; Aquarium admission is not included.
Organizations represented include:
- New England Aquarium
- The Calvineers (video presentation)
- Audubon Society of RI
- Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary
- NOAA Fisheries Northeast Regional Office
- New Bedford Whaling Museum
- Whales and Dolphin Conservation
- Irving Oil
Want to put on an activity?
If your organization works on right whale conservation issues, you can participate by putting on a hands-on activity that engages families in what you do. Don't worry if you don't have a lesson plan ready to go. Aquarium educators will work with you on the best way to present your group's work. Please use this link to register by April 1.
