For Bay Area scientists and educators, the 80-foot, adult female blue whale that washed up on Bolinas Beach after being hit by a ship at the end of May continues to be of great interest. Fourteen institutions—four educational organizations and 10 scientific projects—have already received parts of the whale’s body. The Bolinas School and the downtown park may end up with some of its bones, once they obtain permits from NOAA. Above, the mandible, the lower part of the whales jaw.    David Briggs
