Washed Ashore™ Sculpture Exhibit — Whale Tail


10′ 3″ long by 7′ 6″ wide by 7′ 9″ high


Humpback whales swim through every ocean in the world. They can grow up to 50 feet and adults can weigh 40 tons. These giants of the deep are an iconic animal for many people who love the ocean, but not long ago they were an endangered species. Hunted to the brink of extinction by whalers, this species now represents one of the most successful comeback stories in the ocean and their numbers continue to increase. In order to ensure these whales repopulate the oceans they once roamed, it is our responsibility to ensure their environment is free from another man-made threat, our trash.
