Raising Big Blue

Raising Big Blue

Documentary

Raising Big Blue follows the search, excavation, and re-assembly of the bones of a magnificent blue whale buried near an isolated Prince Edward Island village. Biologists must dig up the whale, ship it across the country, clean it, and then try to piece back together its 18 tonne skeleton for a museum exhibition.
Part natural history documentary, part mega-build, Raising Big Blue also travels with researchers as they search the world’s oceans for clues that could bring this magnificent beast back from the brink of extinction.
