Darwin Day at the Dead Zoo


Tomorrow is International Darwin Day and there are some great events taking place in the Natural History Museum (the "Dead" Zoo) in Dublin tomorrow. From 1pm to 2pm, Keeper Nigel Monaghan will give a presentation on Evolution Indoors, in which he will explore the evidence for evolution in the animals on display in the museum. This event is for adults only and no booking is required. Later in the afternoon (3pm to 4pm) there is an excellent family workshop, Cheeky Monkeys, where human links with our closest cousins, the primates, are explored. Again, no booking is required and the workshop is suitable for all ages! For a full list of all National Museum events click here. While you are there, don't forget to say hello to Spotticus the Giraffe!
