Where better to get natural-science story ideas than the Canadian Museum of Nature?
The museum is Canada's national natural history museum, with roots dating back more than 150 years. With numerous specialists on staff, the museum is renowned in the scientific community for exciting, break-through research. Many of the treasures in our more than 14.6 million-specimen collection are one-of-a-kind.
From the cleaning and mounting of a blue whale skeleton, to the discovery of a new genus of fossil carnivore, we have many exciting stories to tell.
