The wall, dedicated in 1984, was a gift to the city of White Rock from California marine wildlife artist Wyland and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. It portrays a mother grey whale and her calf, along with a male escort, passing White Rock on their annual migration between Mexico and the Bering Sea.

The Whaling Wall was restored a number of years ago through a public funding drive led by former White Rock Councillor James Coleridge.

Located in the Sea Side Resort City of White Rock, British Columbia Canada. The Wall is 21 meters long and was painted in 1984. This was Wyland's First International wall. Wyland met the then Mayor,Gordon Hogg at Wyland's Art show at the Vancouver Aquarium.

The Mayor and Wyland soon had an agreement to do a Whaling Wall in White Rock, the Mayor arranged all the permits and Wyland was embraced by the community of White Rock as he Painted the Wall. The wall depicts a mother Gray Whale and her calf on the annual migration from Mexico to the Bering Seas.
