26th November - Natural History Museum

On Saturday 26th November IWT’s Dublin branch went for a tour of the National Museum of Ireland’s Natural History division with its resident education assistant, Catherine McGuinness. Catherine took us through our collection of both the frequently spotted and the rarely glimpsed animals while discussing some of the challenges and threats faced by these familiar creatures in Ireland today. The spectacular Giant Irish Deer or Irish Elk skeletons and the Pilot Whale skulls attracted particular interest! (photos courtesy of Joy)
