It's always sad to hear of a species in danger. Thankfully, we have organizations such as NOAA Fisheries Services that step up to offer protection and preservation of our nation's living marine inhabitants. One of their most pressing causes currently is the North Atlantic Right whale.
With as few as 325 of these animals in existence to date, and with the extremely high vessel-related death and injury ratio, NOAA enlisted the help of Landmark to bring awareness to this tragedy.
Armed with a 22-foot long, life-size, custom inflatable Right whale calf, they travel from exhibit to exhibit introducing people to the plight of these gorgeous creatures. Used at over 20 events each year, they have brought awareness to 10,000 people in the past six months.
From its sad eyes to its detailed markings, this massive baby is helping to save his species as he makes stops at festivals, shows, schools and more. Well done, big guy!
