Dear MARMAM colleagues,

As part of our exhibition development programme, the Natural History Museum, London, is seeking to find the skeleton of a blue whale calf* (*age at death around 12 months; length up to 13 metres) which could be articulated for display purposes.  The NHM would be interested in either a long-term loan, or the purchase of a specimen that has been legally acquired.

Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

Richard C. Sabin
