Elizabeth Wile and Alanna Canaran, of Project SculptShore, organized a successful cleanup event at Africville in the Bedford Basin on July 14th. Teaming up with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Halifax, they educated youth about the North Atlantic right whale and encouraged their involvement in cleaning up shorelines and protecting the ocean environment. The initiative aims to raise awareness for the whale's conservation by addressing threats like entanglement, boat strikes, and plastic pollution. Wile and Canaran, with their life-sized whale calf sculpture, are continuing their summer drive along the East Coast, promoting positive messaging and engaging communities in the cause.
