Roll the Bones

In July 2007, a group of workers from the WHOI Facilities Department moved the display skeleton of a pilot whale—a longtime fixture of the lobby of the Redfield Laboratory—to its new home in the Marine Research Facility. The MRF, which opened last year, is the new home of WHOI's marine mammal researchers, the Computerized Scanning and Imaging Facility (CSI), a necropsy suite, and other researchers studying marine biology and conservation. The yeoman moving crew included (from left to right): Dana Hackett, Jay Murphy, Bob Sanker, Bruce Lancaster, John Crobar, and Walter Albaugh.
