Each exhibit conveys the importance of wildlife and habitat conservation, the balance of nature, and the relationships formed between animals, humans and the environment. Current exhibits include: Vanishing Africa. This gallery tells the story of Africa's vanishing habitat, comparing the African wilds of 100 years ago to the Africa of today. Designed as an interactive biologists' field camp, the exhibit lets visitors engage in a variety of activities, including writing in a field journal, examining preserved Goliath beetles, using microscopes, and listening to stories about the African culture by the campfire.
