Living Worlds

Living Worlds explores the relationship between people and nature. We affect nature and nature affects us.

Living Worlds

Living Worlds explores the relationship between people and nature. We affect nature and nature affects us.

 A wild sheep wearing a woolly jumper illustrates use of resources, and a baby elephant and a Honey Bear relate to children’s stories. A crane and piece of rubble from the Hiroshima atomic blast are surrounded by paper origami cranes to tell a story of peace.

The gallery includes many of our best animals, such as a Tiger, a Polar Bear, a Gorilla and the skull of Old Billy, the oldest horse in the world.

Living Worlds App

We've developed a web app to accompany the Living Worlds gallery. Just like the gallery, the app is about the natural world and people’s relationships with it. You can explore information on the specimens and species on display, find out more information about the different species, as well as suggestions on how you can get more involved with nature, if you want to. There should be something of interest for everyone!
