Sea of whale tails


Welcome the Whales with a "Sea of whale tails" (SWT). As part of a educational program with Marine Mammal Research .com the project involes local schools and the community to be part in celebrating the importance of these marine mammals to Australian waters. Community members, school leaders and students from local Public School help create “Sea of Whale Tails”. 
The SWT project encourages communities to promote the protection of whales around the world. This project helps celebrate the annual humpback whale migration & conservation of all whales in Australian waters.

1: Cut out, colour & decorate your tail, 2: write your name or a message on the back of the tail, 3: wave it at the ocean to welcome the whales to our shore! 4: Then come & place your whale tail to create the art installation.


The whale tail template is available to download


If your school can’t attend the day’s events & would still like to be a part of the ‘Sea of Whale Tail’ project, then please cut out & decorate as many whale tail templates & send them to event contacts blelow so we can represent you & your school on the day.
