Survival of the Slowest takes a moment to ponder animal evolution. People have a limited view of evolution and adaptation that says that animals need to be the strongest, the biggest and the fastest in order to compete against other animals and survive.

 

In reality, there are many more evolutionary strategies out there than simply being the biggest or fastest, and there are just as many advantages to being small and slow. Featuring animals like tortoises and sloths which have survived for millions of years despite being very slow, this exhibit explores the counterintuitive side of evolution and adaptation.

Ready to visit Wild America? While everyone is aware of elephants, giant pandas, giraffes and dozens of other animals that live on the other side of the globe, people tend to know very little about the animals in their own backyards.

 

Wild America is an exhibit that celebrates local biodiversity and informs visitors of the interesting species in their own neighbourhoods. How are these creatures faring, and what can people do to help them? Each installation of this exhibit is unique as it will feature animals and information specific to the region it is being deployed in.
