As part of Richmond Celebrates Canada 150, the “Build a Real Killer Whale Skeleton” program will be available to schools and the public to enhance the “Our Coastal Connection” exhibit in the Seine Net Loft building at the Britannia Shipyards. The exhibit explores our historic connection to the local waterways and how these strong ties have sparked local projects to keep our rivers and oceans healthy for future generations. The opportunity to “Build a Real Killer Whale” is an interactive program that aims to educate participants about marine biology, anatomy, science and conservation. The program is hands-on and engaging as students and public audiences assist in constructing the skeleton of an offshore killer whale. The program is supported by Sea Smart and the skeleton is owned by Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society.
