Animals Without Passports

Follow along with humpback whales as they migrate from right here in Massachusetts to the Caribbean.

Animals Without Passports is a small exhibit that examines this annual journey from the Atlantic Ocean to warmer tropical waters. You’ll learn about the hazards that humpbacks face as they cross ocean borders, explore issues impacting the marine ecosystem, and consider our own role in protecting these amazing animals.

The humpback whales travel nearly 3,000 miles during their migration, but you can experience the drama of their incredible journey in just a few footsteps!
