Marine Mammal Day at North Carolina Museum of Natural Science

Written by Keith_Rittmaster. Posted in Uncategorized

On January 29, we participated in Marine Mammal day at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.We were busy demonstrating how we make molds of our sperm whale teeth and  how we paint the replica teeth to make them realistic.We educated folks about our Monofilament Recovery and Recycling Program; our Marine Mammal Stranding Network; the skeletal structure of whales and dolphins and our dolphin photo ID program. In addition to using words and pictures, we used our ‘dolphin fin matching’ game to teach in an interactive way. It was a fun, tiring and successful day.
