Whales welcomed in Washington DC

Te Papa’s Whales Tohorā exhibition opened at the National Geographic Museum on 15 October with a traditional Māori dawn ceremony that blew Washington away!

This was the same day Chile announced that its waters are now a whale sanctuary- that’s 5,500km of coastal waters protected from whale hunting for commercial or scientific purposes. A good day for cetaceans!

I hope to get some images up soon of the ceremony so stay tuned!

    Have Australians Stopped Killing Whales? http://is.gd/mgIT What do you think?
