Dan Rahimi revisits the exhibition, reflects on the major changes it brought about, and explains what the ROM is doing this year to balance the scales. The full catalogue is accessible from this site (see the story "Into the Heart of Africa".)

This video shows the beginnings of the Discovery Room. It became a bigger gallery and then evolved into more hands on spaces in the ROM. Some of these original boxes are still available in the Hands on Biodiversity Gallery, for instance.

ROM's plans to make the galleries and exhibitions accessible are accelerated with help from many people. Christine Karza, Board Member, and Cheryl Blackman, seen in the video, have championed the initiatives.
