A Whale of a Tale!

Great News! A life-sized bronze sculpture of J.J. the Orphaned Baby Gray Whale™ rescued by SeaWorld in 1997, nursed back to health, and returned to the ocean when she was a little over a year old, will be installed in the north end of the playground by Spring 2011. Her amazing story, as told by her Veterinarian and Trainers, will be told on the seatwall surrounding the playground for children of all ages to enjoy. Watch for news on the "Unwhaling"!

Check on her progress at the BronzeArtwork Foundry:
