Species at Risk

The Royal BC Museum’s travelling exhibition Species at Risk will be turning three this year–and what better way to celebrate than to head out for our longest road trip yet.

In 2015 our customized teardrop trailer visited the Okanagan and, in 2016, it headed for the Kootenays. In the summer of 2017 it’s bound for the far northeast of the province. Our two travelling interpreters look forward to sharing information and engaging with locals to learn more about species and environments at risk of going extinct or becoming extirpated.

Below is a list of our dates open to the public. If you can’t join us in person, you can come along virtually. Follow our Twitter account @RBCMLearn for photos and updates from the road.
