The Famous Tay Whale
Thursday 1st June 2017 at 7pm
In December 1883, a humpback whale swam into the Firth of Tay while hunting small fish. Unfortunately for the whale, Dundee was Britain’s premier whaling port and a crew of men went out to capture the creature. The struggle that happened afterwards divided opinion about the whaling industry.
So join Mike Sedakat, the Curator of Botany and Zoology of Leisure & Culture Dundee, for an informative talk on this great whale.
This promises to be a fascinating lecture and not to be missed.
