The Royal Ontario Museum's new exhibit showcases their commitment to Canada‚Äôs iconic North Atlantic whales. The blue whale exhibit is expanding to add  two new whale skeletons: the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale and the deep diving sperm whale. Great Whales compares these three unique giants, from their size and diet to their intelligence and evolution, while highlighting the extensive ongoing research and conservation efforts being undertaken to save these mammals from extinction. The ROM invites you to dive in and discover these incredible great whales of Canada's east coast, their complex relationships with humans, and what we can do to save them.

The work of the Canadian Whale Institute, the Campobello Whale Rescue Team and a memorial for Joe Howlett are important components of the exhibit.
