Amphibian Exhibit in Lincoln through November 30
Amphibians: Vibrant and Vanishing will be at the University of Nebraska State Museum at Morrill Hall until November 30, 2011.
The exhibit features over 60 striking photographs of amphibians that stretch our notions of beauty and shed light on the tragic decline of some of Earth’s most magnificent species.
Amphibians showcases the incredible diversity of these species, which include frogs, toads, newts, salamanders and more. Large-scale images give visitors a close-up look at these endearing and expressive creatures–from the strange to the comical, the camouflaged to the canary yellow.
Sadly, many amphibians are on the brink of extinction. The exhibit also highlights the widespread losses these species are experiencing due to environmental factors, such as pollution, habitat loss, climate change, and disease.
