As part of the recent Island Whale Festival, DRI brought our own whale to the Cowes Cultural Centre! Educators Mandy and Jess, and the 19m inflatable whale, held booked-out ‘Whale out of Water’ programs for over 300 people over the weekend.
The sessions lasted for 45 minutes, and used amazing research footage to tell unforgettable stories about the marine animals that live along our coasts. The real Wow factor was when the young kids, and some not-so-young, ventured inside the whale!
Thanks to everyone at Destination Phillip Island, Phillip Island Nature Parks, Bass Coast Shire Council and Wildlife Coast Cruises for putting the festival together – and especially Kim, Pauline and Mika. Here’s to next year!
