Orca Skeleton at Port Townsend Marine Science Center Nearly Complete


Staff, volunteers, and subject experts at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center are almost finished putting together the orca skeleton known as “Hope.”

PTMSC has been documenting the process on their blog, and we encourage you to read it for the exciting step-by-step process.

Hope’s skeleton will be stored in sections throughout the Natural History Exhibit and classroom for the time being. Although it will be a while before PTMSC are able to build her a home at Fort Worden, we are glad her presence will remain here.
