Member Evening: The Story of Hope with Richard Sabin
Event type: Evening event
Location: Flett Theatre
Member: £10 (includes a drink)
At a staggering 4.3 tonnes and 25.2 metres, Hope is suspended in a majestic swooping posture within the Museum's iconic Hintze Hall.
The lecture will focus on how her skeleton was selected, the science behind the new pose, the massive feat of engineering behind the display and the story of her appearance on the Irish coast, long before she arrived at the Museum.
Richard will also explain the research into other whales in our collection, and some of the things we have learned since her Hintze Hall debut in 2017.
This is a story about a remarkably diverse group of animals, the human actions that have put them under great pressure and our responsibility to protect the future of our planet.
The event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
