Our unbounded consumption of fossil fuels, the destruction of natural habitats and the mountains of waste we generate have triggered a chain of events that only we have the power to slow down. But it is the younger generation who will be burdened with the consequences of this crisis – and have to find ways to solve it.
My World, My Future amplifies the voices of children and young people living in Dorset and Wiltshire, expressing their concerns on environmental issues and the climate emergency. These issues not only affect them, but children across the world.
This digital exhibition showcases the work these young people carried out with our four partner museums on a project called Create and Collect for Climate Change. The focus is on their ideas for positive action to mitigate the impact of climate change.
Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.
The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.
The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
