Buy-A-Bone

Leave a legacy, or honor a loved one! Buy-A-Bone and help save the whale.
You can help the museum save its most famous icon – our Blue Whale skeleton. After 20 years, the whale’s bones are deteriorating and must be restored or in some cases, replaced. Your support will ensure that the whale is there for future generations, along with new interpretive signs and interactive exhibit features. Please click through to buy-a-bone online or contact Caroline Grange at Museum if you are interested in buying a bone to support the Blue Whale Restoration Project at 805-682-4711 ext. 109 or cgrange@sbnature2.org.
