Visit to the Ackroyd and Harvey exhibition

posted in: Engagment | 0

Sunday 20th March, Ann visited the Ackroyd and Harvey exhibition at the Zoology Museum, currently open for the exhibition while the redevelopment work continues. Ann got involved with one of the installations, calling on visitors to overdraw, or make bold the 4374 critically endangered animals listed on the wall. As the Frozen Ark was founded following Bryans research on speciation of Partula in French Polynesia, which then turned in to a study of extinction, it seemed appropriate for Ann to fill in the Partula Taeniata on the ‘Seeing Red..Overdrawn’ wall on behalf of the Frozen Ark and in memory of Bryan.
