ROM’s spectacular Blue Whale exhibition opens next year

blue whaleThe Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) will open a new exhibition, Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story, on Saturday, March 11, 2017. The exhibition explores the story of the nine blue whales from the endangered North Atlantic population that became stranded in thick ice and died. Two of these specimens came ashore in Trout River and Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland in May 2014. In cooperation with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, the ROM and Research Casting International travelled to the site and recovered the skeletons, their DNA and other important biological information. This Canadian recovery story was followed closely by millions of people around the world. – CINEWS
