Postcard: Art meets science at Sitka’s Whalefest


Over it’s 17-year run, Sitka’s WhaleFest has evolved from a tourist event into a research and cultural conference on a wide range of Arctic and marine mammals issues. There is also a large educational component, as visiting scientists spend considerable time in local classrooms.

Blatchley Middle School student reporters Ella Lubin, Lilly Hood, and Kaia Gleason attended several of the WhaleFest floor sessions, and met with the presenters and their audience.
