The Qualicum Beach museum invites everyone out for a free display and hands-on demonstration from the Royal B.C. Museum.

The exhibit and interpreters will spend the summer travelling back and forth across the province “to discuss what B.C. could lose if we don’t make big changes to our relationship with the natural world,” according to their website.

“B.C. is known for its spectacular nature but there is little awareness of the many species under threat,” it says, the exhibit “looks at why certain species are at risk, what their loss could mean and how you can help.”

According to the museum more than 1,500 of the provinces estimated 50,000 plant and animal species are at risk.

“The travelling exhibition is housed in an inventively re-made trailer and accompanied by skilled and personable interpreters from the Royal B.C. Museum and the Robert Bateman Centre,” the website says.

“Species at Risk is a fun and illuminating mobile museum for summer camps, community museums and other partners throughout the province.”

The prestigious Victoria museum’s Species at Risk travelling exhibit will be at the Qualicum Beach Museum from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. next Thursday, June 23.
