I loooooove museums of Natural History and the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC did not disappoint! My cousin Sarah (pictured bottom right) was one of a few young artists being honoured for a poem she wrote for the Robert Bateman “Get To Know” program and she had an extra ticket to the soiree held at the museum! Sarah wrote a beautiful poem titled “Dawn’s Dreamer”, and it was great to see her involved in such a neat program! After the ceremony and speeches, we were allowed to tour around the collections and see just a few of the amazing specimens stored in the museum (used for both research and public information). I would HIGHly recommend visiting the museum, I had a lot of fun looking at all of the critters! It’s worth visiting for the massive blue whale skeleton alone! My labmates and I were lucky enough to see the whale in Victoria while it was being restored, before it was moved to the Beaty Museum – so cool to see it fully assembled!
