The Humpback Whale Institute's interpretive center, Espaço Baleia Jubarte, is maintained with PETROBRAS sponsorship and was designed to introduce visitors to these amazing creatures who frequent the region during winter and spring. A garden walk will reveal an adult whale skeleton, several replicas showing typical humpback whale behaviors, and an auditorium with interactive displays, species miniatures and a continuous show of the best images of Brazilian humpbacks obtained by the Project crew.
