Wild Life in the Red

Book on our free online talks

Supported by

Our Wildlife in the Red online talks programme brings together conservation bodies and individuals who are working to save threatened species, whether on a local to global scale.  We hope they will inspire you to learn more about nature, and to find ways you can help restore the biodiversity of our planet.

The talks are all free, but we would appreciate any donations. Wessex Museums is a charity and our mission is to support museums to connect, inspire and add value to people’s lives. In these challenging times, your help is needed more than ever.

Wild Life in the Red

What do you think about our exhibition?

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
