Nature Live Online: The Modern Naturalist

Learn about Gilbert White, a pioneering naturalist and ecologist who shaped our modern attitude of respect for nature. 

Join Museum Ecologist Stephanie West as she discusses White's meticulous recordings and observations of the natural world and how they paved the way for many naturalists to come, including Charles Darwin. White's work has had a lasting impact on the study of nature today.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

We hope you share our passion for the Museum. We're continuing to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

But the Museum is a charity and we need your help. With our doors closed we're losing vital income, and if you could help us with a donation, no matter the size, we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
