A Museum visit and guided tour of Ornithology (Birds) Section – Sat 8 Dec, Nairobi Museum

December 8

When was the last time your employee visited Nairobi National Museum?

The Kenya Museum Society has organized an interesting and educational outing to the Miuseum, particularly Ornithology Section for your employees, their family and friends in December.

The Ornithology Section is a leading center for Ornithological research in Kenya and Africa. Our specimen collection boasts over 30,000 study specimens, tissues, nests and eggs. The specimens date to as far back as 1895 and include a good number of holotypes (the original specimen used to describe the species). The section also stores thousands of egg shells, tissue samples, feathers slides and photographs.

What to learn;

  • The Bird Collection; how many Bird species we have in Kenya, the importance of specimen preservation and conservation.
  • Practical demonstration of Bird ringing – how is it done, why is it done and how does it contribute to the efforts of conservation?
