Title: Sperm Whale Project
Url: http://www.prattmuseum.org/spermwhale/
Publisher: Pratt Museum of Natural History
Description: This site describes an award-winning project in Homer, Alaska. After a sperm whale carcass washed ashore, a museum-school collaboration implemented a five-year cross-disciplinary marine science education project using major grant funding. Students worked with museum staff, scientists, public agencies and the community to research the whale, preserve, articulate and mount its skeleton. They developed exhibits, school and community education programs interpreting the whale and promoting ocean conservation in the region.
