The Whale School 2016 – First Visits

The Whale School, our annual educational program, collaborated with the local schools, started today with a visit from Grænuvellir Kindergarten students. Húsavík’s children visit the Whale School at least three times over a period of five years, where they gradually add new information about the whales and their habitation to their knowledge.
