Summer Special: A Tale Of Two Penguins – Wednesday 6th August 2014, 7pm

tale of two penguins jpegThe D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum at the University of Dundee holds two penguin specimens that each have extraordinary stories to tell, connecting Dundee’s whaling industry with pioneering Antarctic exploration.

Find out how these penguins came to be in D’Arcy Thompson’s collection and how a Dundee student became part of the first expedition in the world to reach the South Magnetic Pole. The penguins featured in the talk can be viewed at the D’Arcy Thompson Museum.

This event took place at our regular venue, the delightful Infusion coffee shop, at Dundee Science Centre.
