From ocean-crossing birds to tiny butterflies, from trout to toads – many animals migrate to escape the cold, find food or reach their breeding grounds. But climate change and the changes people make to the landscape are making these journeys harder…
Animals on the Move brings together local artists, conservation organisations and scientific researchers to showcase the incredible journeys made by our migratory animals, the challenges human activities add to these migrations, and the things we can all do to help.
Showcasing amphibians, birds, butterflies and fish, the exhibition aims to open visitors’ eyes to the extraordinary distances some animals travel to reach us, as well as the mass migrations that happen every year right on our doorstep.
This multimedia exhibition offers something for everyone, including photographic displays, specially commissioned artworks, sound recordings, and interactive activities for all ages.
Come along to enjoy the artworks and learn more about our migratory species, plus discover ways to get involved with local conservation organisations and even quiz the scientists on their latest animal movement research!
