Inspires humility

At the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver.

The skeleton of the 25-metre great blue whale, the largest animal ever to roam the planet, is suspended by just a few rods, poised dramatically in a lunge feeding position, its enormous jaw half open. The exhibit, which will be open to the public on May 22 for International Day of Biodiversity, is just one of two blue-whale displays in Canada, and the most accurate in the world.

Its sheer size inspires humility – and the effort behind its display is no less impressive.
