Every December during Right Whale Awareness Month
Whale Week aims to bring together the Savannah community and beyond to build awareness and honor North Atlantic right whales (Eubalena glacialis). Through a week of events we draw from local and national experts to learn about this curious large marine mammal, the environmental factors affecting their future, and how we can play a role in ocean stewardship.
The NArw is Georgia's official state marine mammal since 1985 and bring much excitement to the coastal and island communities of Georgia and North Florida every year when they make their voyage home for the winter.
Whale Week co-founders are Paulita Bennett-Martin and Tara Garrigan with help from Loop It Up, Oceana, Tybee Island Marine Science Center, Nancy Daves and many more great humans.
