Blue Whale Skeleton Exhibit in Vancouver, BC - Live Webcast May 22
The museum is offering 5 free summer previews of the museum, starting tomorrow, before the grand opening in the Fall. I hope I will have a chance to join in the fun. For those of you who read this post in time, there is a live webcast of the event tomorrow (Sat, May 22) for the International Day of Biodiversity, starting at 11:30am Pacific time.
here and in the accompanying web pages.
Along with the blue whale skeleton, which is the first of its kind in Canada, and one of only 20 such exhibits in the world, the Beaty Biodiversity Museum will hold "more than 2 million specimens of birds, reptiles, fish, plants, shells, fossils, and insects for research and public display. Digital exhibits will showcase the cutting-edge research of the Biodiversity Research Centre's award-winning scientists. Through lecture series, guided tours, and public events, the Museum will aim to make biodiversity accessible and exciting."
