Gray Whale Marine Debris Activity

November 12, 2020

In this activity, participants will examine the stomach contents of a gray whale that stranded on Arroyo Beach in West Seattle on April 14, 2010.

The whale had a surprising amount of human debris in its stomach, including a golf ball, plastic bags, small towels, surgical gloves, plastic, and duct tape.
