Education

Let's learn about whales and dolphins!

WDC's education and outreach team visit classrooms and community events to talk with people about the important role whales play in our ocean ecosystem. We often bring Delilah, our life-sized inflatable right whale to meet new faces and give people the unique experience of going inside a whale!

We offer in-person or virtual presentations that you can bring to your classroom or your event.

Contact us for program details and pricing.

Program Highlight: Learn whale anatomy with Delilah, our life-sized inflatable North Atlantic right whale!

Through hands-on activities, students will learn about the whale’s internal & external anatomy – focusing on adaptations for survival. Students will also explore life-sized whale artifacts, such as bones and baleen. 

Echo, our life-sized anatomically correct bottlenose dolphin, will be traveling around schools and events to teach folks about dolphins alongside Delilah.
