Got a question?

You can ask questions while the talk is happening. Head to the video on YouTube and type your question into the chat box during the broadcast.

What can a whale's earwax tell us about its life, health and habitat?

According to two recent studies, the answer is an awful lot. On World Nature Conservation day, join Museum Curator Richard Sabin to discover some of the fascinating ways we study whales, and how vital museum collections are helping us to understand and conserve these magnificent mammals. 

Once aired, you can rewatch this talk and any others on our Nature Live playlist on YouTube.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
