The Wild Fair 2016 , Oxford Festival of Nature, at Oxford University Museum of Natural History

A return visit for this annual event, organised by Berks Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust, and in the same magnificent museum building amongst the wonderful collection of exhibits and artefacts, with over 7500 visitors on the Wild Fair Saturday. We had a corner spot for our Marine Wildlife display, with the Roadshow Penguins adding their presence to the Penguin Watch project which was alongside us. This project is run by Oxford University's Zoology Dept, and aims to get public involvement in monitoring and assessing the penguin populations in Antarctica....for more info see,    and get involved,   and see    for more info on the penguin conservation work in Antarctica.
