MOV and Nature Vancouver proudly present Wild Things: The Power of Nature in Our Lives, an exhibition that delves into the life stories of local animals and plants—how they connect with each other and how people connect with nature in the city. Stories of encounters with wildlife will be told through the eyes of biologists, psychologists, urban planners, Indigenous people and Vancouver-based nature lovers. Scenic design, videos, taxidermy, crowd sourcing technologies and the display of natural specimens will bring these stories to life. The immersive nature of the exhibition environment combined with hands-on activities will encourage you to reflect on and engage in a mutualistic relationship with nature.
