Species at Risk

A Travelling Exhibition


This summer, the Royal BC Museum is hitting the road to discuss what BC could lose if we don’t make big changes to our relationship with the natural world. The travelling exhibition is housed in an inventively re-made trailer and accompanied by skilled and personable interpreters from the Royal BC Museum and the Robert Bateman Centre. Species at Risk is a fun and illuminating mobile museum for summer camps, community museums and other partners throughout the province.
