Zoology Live! 2021: Land, Sea and Sky

Join us online for this year's Zoology Live! Festival. We will be live on YouTube at 7pm every evening from Wednesday 30 June to Friday 2 July. This year we will be broadcasting from the Museum galleries and exploring the animals of the land, sea and sky. Get your questions ready for our wildlife experts, as we explore nature on the doorstep and the animals on display in the Museum. And this year we are looking for you to get involved, recording insects and making a plastics pledge to protect the planet. Want to make sure you don't miss out? Sign up here and you'll get reminders of when these online events will be taking place and how to get involved.

Thursday 1 July, 7pm: Sea

Take a trip underwater with us today as we dive into the oceans and explore the animals of the sea. Find out about our iconic Fin Whale and ask your questions to Collections Manager Matt Lowe about how we moved it when the Whale Hall was built. Discover the temporary exhibition and its theme of sustainability opening soon in the Museum, and hear from artist Mella Shaw about the works going on display. Then uncover the secrets of coral reefs by asking your questions to Department of Zoology researcher Dr Katie Dunkley.

Show your love of the oceans by joining in our Plastics Challenge.
