Come meet Big Mama, the life-sized walk-inside inflatable humpback whale. Explore Big Mama's internal and external anatomy with experts from NOAA's Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. Learn all about what makes humpbacks important to our Washington waters. Practice identifying humpback whales, discover how they eat, and the importance of a thick layer of blubber. You might even discover that whales and humans are more similar than you'd expect.
