Blue whale skeleton destined for MUN’s Core Science Facility surfaces at Royal Ontario Museum
A partnership between Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) has preserved two blue whale skeletons that are now the focus of the museum’s newest exhibit, Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story. The whales washed ashore in Western Newfoundland in April of 2014, and since then have been the subject of shared exploration and study between the two organizations. Found together, the whales are destined for separate homes – one committed to the exhibit and the other to the atrium of MUN’s new Core Science Facility, for which MGAC is serving as project manager.
