Our Weakening Web
January 29, 2011 - May 9, 2011
Our Weakening Web: The Story of Extinction helps visitors understand the process of extinction as a natural occurrence over millions of years. Through the display of life-like dioramas and interactive components that encourage hands-on learning, visitors will find out about the ecological relationships that bind all life forms together. The exhibition shows what is happening today and why environmental conservation is important. Our Weakening Web seeks to compel visitors to take action in their daily lives -- to promote preservation of the Earth's richness and biological diversity.
A beautiful combination of hand-crafted dioramas--featuring scenes from prehistory to present day--and interactive components that focus on environmental impact and advocacy, Our Weakening Web presents a timely, important topic in a fun and engaging fashion. The exhibition was developed by the Cincinnati Museum Center.
