Meet Delilah – Our Inflatable North Atlantic Right Whale

 

We know whales are big, but do you know HOW big?

Have you ever been inside of a whale? We can help!

Delilah is a life-sized inflatable North Atlantic right whale! Her measurements are based off of a real whale who lived along the East coast in the US and Canada and she would love to swim by and visit your event or school.

Delilah and her family are part of the North Atlantic right whales - an endangered species with fewer than 360 individuals remaining.

She would love to tell you her story!
