The Global Backyard
The title refers to the fact, that life on Earth today is interconnected as never before. The exhibition presents a small fraction of the myriad of life with which we share the world. It highlights some of the interesting creatures we know a lot about and at the same time raises questions about all the life forms which we still do not know anything about! Many species we will never get to know because they going extinct as we speak and in the years to come.
Each animal has a local and an international perspective. One of the main elements in the exhibition is a sperm whale that roamed the oceans of the World but ended up on a beach in Sæby in the northern part of Jutland - our own backyard.
Most elements in the exhibitions are original authentic artifacts from nature. They have been collected and preserved through decades -even centuries. These artifacts are the real deal in which an astronomical number of work hours have been invested in.
