The City Whale: How a Long-Finned Pilot Whale Ende

The City Whale: How a Long-Finned Pilot Whale Ende

Details

We’ve been collecting natural science specimens in Leeds for nearly 200 years. In 1868 the skeleton of a Long-finned Pilot Whale was donated to the collections. It is going back on display in autumn 2019 at the City Museum after a long absence thanks to generous funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society and the Friends of Leeds City Museums. Find out how, where and why this poor whale died and how it made its way to Leeds.
