Whale Presentation

On Monday evening at Deepwater Theater, Keith Rittmaster, Natural Science Curator of the N.C. Maritime Museums, presented a fascinating program on North Carolina Whales to an enthusiastic crowd of about 50 people.

Capt. Rob Temple published an informative story about the presentation (with more photos) on the Ocracoke Current. You can read the full article here:

Keith's presentation focused primarily on natural science and ecology related to North Carolina whales. I will be publishing an article I wrote about the history of whale and dolphin fisheries on the Outer Banks in a future Ocracoke Newsletter. Look for that in the next month or so.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is about the almost forgotten 1890 "Oyster Wars" that pitted islanders against outside business interests. You can read the article here:
