Once collectors’ curiosities, now endangered species…
From birds to butterflies, flowers to fish… explorers once scoured the globe to find exotic species to display in museums or private collections. In a virtual exhibition Dorset and its partner museums plan to have a range of natural history objects online. They tell stories of collectors and early environmentalists, but also of species that have been pushed to the brink of extinction. Join Hannah Eastwood, Learning & Community Outreach Coordinator at the Dorset Museum, for an introduction to some of their specimens and topic- bees. Hannah says she’ll have plenty of time for questions and chat!
Join the Zoom video-conference at 2pm. The person you care for is welcome to join in too.
