A Whale of a House!

November 28, 2013 Posted by: K. VandenBerg

The park is one step closer to a world class exhibit!  

A big "thank you" to Glacier Bay's construction crew who took great pride and care in building the perfect "house" for a whale. The newly completed shelter will house the enormous 45-ft. skeleton of Humpback Whale 68. She will be the second largest specimen on display in North America, and quite possibly the world! 

The park is celebrating this milestone - one of many along the 12-year journey to give "Snow," a permanent home in Glacier Bay. The project will culminate with the installation of the articulated whale by Dan DenDanto of Whales & Nails (http://www.whalesandnails.com/Whales_%26_Nails/Home.html) June 2014.

Stay tuned for more on this exciting project!
