April  23: Whales in North Carolina: Diversity, Distribution, Conservation.

Carteret County, NC was home to a dolphin and whale hunting industry, used primarily for oil. Historical records aren’t clear how large the industry was. The industry was founded because there are plenty of cetacean species off the coast. As of 2021, the whale center has documented 34 species of cetaceans (all whales, including dolphins and porpoises) along with The center hosts displays of beaked whale skeletons (Plus another being prepped for display) a 37-foot humpback whale skeleton, plus whale teeth, baleen, and whale oil. “Because of our location near ocean currents, the continental shelf, and many other reasons, North Carolina is a hotspot for cetacean diversity on a global scale and we wanted to explain that,” said Keith Rittmaster, Natural Sciences Curator at the North Carolina Maritime Museum and one of the leaders in the effort to create Bonehenge Whale Center. “And quite frankly, these creatures are amazing and I get excited when people learn about them and say WOW!”
