All of this was developed by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and its Arctic Studies Center. It was organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The Putnam Museum's website went on to state,
The exhibition uses firsthand accounts from these scientists and Inuit community members to reveal how traditional knowledge and experience, coupled with scientific research, heighten the understanding of narwhals and the changing global climate.
Personally I am very excited to see the 18-foot, life-size model of a male narwhal, which happens to be the feature of this exhbit. The history of these things is also amazing,
From their depiction in the 1500s as angry sea monsters to their status as icons of pop culture today, the narwhal, with its unique spiral tusk, has inspired legend in Inuit and European society and fascinated people across cultures for centuries. This mysterious animal and its changing ecosystem are highlighted in this Smithsonian traveling exhibition.
