Investigate the natural world from a new perspective!

This exhibition explores ongoing research with National Geographic Crittercam, a scientific video and data gathering tool safely worn by wild animals. With multimedia activities, evocative environments, and mesmerizing firsthand footage, Crittercam allows visitors to experience the world from an animal’s point of view. Based on more than 25 years of invention and research collaborations spanning the globe, Crittercam offers new insights into animal behavior and provides clues about how to protect our planet’s creatures and the world we share.
