Overview

This stunning exhibit developed by National Geographic and The Cornell Lab of Ornithology captures all 39 known species of birds-of-paradise. After 18 expeditions over an eight-year period, scientist, Edwin Scholes, and National Geographic photographer, Tim Laman, have compiled an exhibit that encompasses sounds bites, videos, photographs and artifacts from their expeditions. The hands-on, multi-media components and mechanical and digital mini-stations allow students to better understand how these beautiful creatures have influenced a conservation movement.
