Earth Day | Mammal Collection Exhibit

Each year the Florida Museum celebrates Earth Day by showcasing specimens from our research collection that the public rarely gets to see. This is our open house, if you like. All of the researchers and students in Mammalogy participate and each table has a theme. The students get together to devise the themes and choose the specimens that will be on display. Because we do this ever year, we try to keep the content changing and interesting to the public. In the images below we had two sets of tables, one highlighting Florida Panthers and one highlighting the common mammals of Florida. Both were a hit with the guests.
