MUN receives rare blue whale skeleton

August 14, 2018

Memorial University of Newfoundland has received a donation from the Dobbin family to restore and install a rare blue whale skeleton in its Core Science Facility in 2020. “The ability to display a blue whale skeleton in this way places Memorial among a select group worldwide,” says MUN President Gary Kachanoski. “A rare gift like this, secured by a generous group of donors, not only sets our university apart, but will also provide an incredible learning experience for anyone who visits our Core Science Facility.” The family has reportedly been funding the project for 4 years.
