Whale week opens November 13, 2023 and you’re invited to join us at the Opening Ceremony with a beautiful Native American Blessing by our own Chantal Audran of Otoe-Missouria and an African American Libation by Hermina-Glass Hill, as well as a message from Lidea Clever, a local 9 year old conservationist (Sea Life with Liddy). The ceremony will take place off of the 2nd AVE / East Gate crossover on Tybee Island.
Following the beachside ceremony will be the free screening of the Nova Documentary Film, “Saving the RIGHT WHALE” at the Tybee Post Theater at 4:00pm.
The Right Whale To Save – Art Show and Fundraiser on November 14 will provide support for the North Atlantic right whale exhibit currently under construction at the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. Guests will enjoy North Atlantic right whale-inspired artwork, live music, and refreshments, and an opportunity to peek inside the Tybee Island Marine Science Center.
Marina signage encouraging boats to “Go Slow, Whales Below” designed by selected artists will be unveiled. Attendees will be able to “purchase” an opportunity to name a whale, commemorating their support of this important exhibit. The Right whale banner art is by Lia Aleman.
