Join Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society and Parks Canada for an afternoon of reconstructing a real Killer Whale skeleton! Build-A-Whale is an interactive program that allows participants to help rebuild the skeleton of an offshore Killer Whale bone-by-bone while learning about the biology, ecology, anatomy, evolution, and conservation of killer whales and other marine mammals.

There will be an opportunity for whale cookie decorating and Face Painting by Paula for all kids, sponsored by Gray Whale Deli in Ucluelet. The Parks Canada Outreach team will have a booth set up, as well. Feel free to ask these groups about the local marine ecosystems and marine mammals.
This is a button event suitable for all ages and buttons will be available on site.
