Visitors to Union Wharf in downtown Port Townsend read information about a North Pacific gray whale that was stranded on a beach in Port Ludlow and died in 2019 as they look at a display of the 42-foot whale’s skeleton on Union Wharf in Port Townsend. The skeleton, which was dedicated on Tuesday after it had been put together in July, “is attracting a lot of attention,” said Liesl Slabaugh, development and marketing director for the Port Townsend Marine Life Center. She said personnel at the center hoped the exhibit would inspire awareness and curiosity ”about this whole world that is under the water and our interdependence with it… We need to respect their home.”
