Week 1 Orca Articulation

The first week of the Orca Articulation Project is already coming to an end and we are making great progress! This week has been an exciting and busy time as volunteers finish final cleaning on the bones and start putting the pieces of this whale together. You can learn the story of our orca, named Hope, on our Orca Project web page.

A few highlights from this week's work:




Volunteers Sue and Karen describe the process (so far) of assembling an orca flipper:



One of the most inspiring parts about working on the Orca Project is how it has attracted the support and attention of so many members of our community.  A local glass artist created these "Hope Beads" to sell and is donating all the proceeds to the Orca Project!  These one of a kind creations will be available at our open Skeleton Articulation Open Houses  on Fri-Sun, 1-4pm, February 4,5,6 and 11, 12, 13.


We hope to see you in February. What part of the whale do you think we will be working on by then?
