Canada’s Oceans and YOU: The Rising Sea (Part 1)

Posted: April 12, 2012 - 10:25 , by Dave Ireland

Packing and transporting over 50 specimens from the ROM to the Direct Energy Centre at the Exhibition grounds for the Canada’s Oceans and You: An Interactive Exhibition at the Green Living Show is not a simple task. Days of preparation happen: models are placed delicately in or on packing material, real taxidermy specimens must be cleaned and crated, and all are loaded neatly into trucks.

Ultimate Dinos Sneak Peek: Dinos in the Big City

Posted: April 11, 2012 - 11:32 , by David Evans

We returned from the field in Patagonia to the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. At about 13 million people in the metro area, BA is the largest city in the country, and third largest in modern Gondwana (behind Sao Paulo and Cairo). There are dinosaurs in Buenos Aires, but only in museums, as the fossils were found in other parts of the country- mostly Patagonia. We spent one day at the Natural Science Museum, or MACN, on the edge of Palermo.

This morning, the ROM’s Maya High Priest hopped on the GO-Train giving commuters a surprise welcome with their morning coffees.  Promoting the final days of Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World before it closes on April 9, 2012, this was a fun event for everyone (and a chilly one for the our High Priest)!
