During the summer of 1992 we inaugurated a new research and interpretation building, which houses a museum, a 50 person theater, and our offices. Through the museum exhibits we offer the public acomplement to our field research and a more complete view of our studies of marine mammals. We show you how these animals live beneath the surface through painted murals, full size skeletons and models, and a myriad photographs. Naturalists and researchers are on hand to answer your questions and present slide shows and videos on the general biology and ongoing research of marine mammals found in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Academic credit is available through WhaleNet and Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. Contact Professor Michael Williamson, for details in the CTA 592: Field Studies in Marine Science course.
ADOPT A BLUE WHALE PROGRAM
Our blue whale adoption program enables the public to learn about and participate in blue whale research through the individual that they have adopted. Foster parents receive membership in MICS, an 8x10 photograph, sighting records oftheir whale, and a 20x30" blue whale poster. The funds collected through this program provide vital support for the research effort.
