Clean Break – Animal Attic Conservation Update
We’re halfway through our Animal Attic Project, and the Conservation team, with the help of our Facilities and Natural Science collection colleagues, have been busily beavering away. The gallery has been emptied of specimens, except for our Asian elephant skeleton which stayed put. After a good clean, it has kept us company while we work in the eerily empty gallery.
