Endangered & Extinct

Sat 4th May 2019 to Sun 1st Sep 2019 - All Day


A family-friendly exhibition of sculptural animals, birds, fish and flora on the edge of extinction, or totally lost, fashioned with ingenuity, humour and skill by creative recycling artist Val Hunt from throw-away materials.

The exhibition presents messages about recycling and preservation, raising awareness of the reasons for extinction and the human impact on this planet as species disappear at an alarming rate.

There will be lots of activities in the galleries, including different environments for visitors to add in endangered species, an endangered animal mask selfie station and a climate change and environment trail.

Supported by:
