Huellas, rastros y señales en Castilla y León

20/01/15
The Museo de la Ciencia in Valladolid has a new exhibition: Huellas, rastros y señales de la fauna salvaje de Castilla y León. Visitors will learn all about a part of the language used by nature to communicate with human beings.

Wildlife leave tracks and traces in nature that can give us lots of important information about the animals: they can tell us where and how an animal lives, what it eats, how it moves, about its habits and how it protects itself.

The exhibition aims to present and decode the traces that animals leave when interacting with their environments. Visitors will learn about mammals and how to obtain information from tracks, excrements, food waste, skins, skeleton, skulls and more. There will also be exhibits dedicated to birds, such as abandoned nests, replica eggs and wings, and colourful feathers. And finally, there will be a chance to make tracks in a sand bank and play a game using the sense of touch.

Huellas, rastros y señales de la fauna salvaje de Castilla y León will be open to the public until 21 June 2015. You can find more information here on the museum’s web page.
