Description

GHOST COAST DISTILLERY, LOOP IT UP, TYBEE ISLAND MARINE SCIENCE CENTER, DR. SIMONA PERRY, AND W PROJECTS REQUEST THE HONOR OF YOUR PRESENCE AT SAVANNAH'S FIRST WHALE WEEK VIP RECEPTION.

SINCE THE WINTER OF 2017, LOCAL ARTS, SCIENCE, ADVOCACY, AND EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS HAVE COME TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS OF GEORGIA'S OFFICIAL STATE MARINE MAMMAL,

THE NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALE. EVERY YEAR THESE WHALES COME FROM ACROSS THE OCEAN TO REACH OUR GEORGIA COAST. WE ARE THEIR SAFE HAVEN AND ONLY HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

WHALE WEEK STARTED AS A ONE NIGHT AUCTION AND EVOLVED INTO A WEEK OF EVENTS FOR ALL AGES DURING THE CALVING SEASON FOR OUR MAJESTIC WHALES.

GEORGIA PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN THE FUTURE OF THIS ENDANGERED SPECIES. WE ALSO ARE HOME TO A COMMUNITY OF EXPERTS WHO HAVE PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE HISTORY OF THIS SPECIES. WHALE WEEK BRINGS ALL OF THIS TOGETHER FOR OUR COASTAL GEORGIA COMMUNITY.

ON NOVEMBER SIXTH, WHALE WEEK WILL AWARD ONE INDIVIDUAL AS OUR ANNUAL WHALE GUARDIAN. THIS INDIVIDUAL HAS COMMITTED RESOURCES AND PASSION TO THE CONSERVATION OF THE OCEANS AND SPECIFICALLY TO THE NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALE, PROVING TO ALL THIS IS THE RIGHT WHALE TO SAVE.

THERE WILL ALSO BE A SILENT AUCTION, COMPLIMENTARY DINNER SERVED, AND A CASH BAR FOR SIGNATURE COCKTAILS BY THE HOST GHOST COAST DISTILLERY. PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT WILL GO TO WHALE WEEK EVENTS AND YEAR ROUND WHALE PROGRAMMING AT TYBEE ISLAND MARINE SCIENCE CENTER.
