Celebrating Nature

As Canadians, we come from such a rich land. Although it can be hard to pry our eyes away from the destruction of our beloved land, and planet, sometimes it is nice to look towards what we still have to enjoy. The Canadian Museum of Nature is doing just that. They’re extremely active within their museum, and dedicated to academic involvements in house, but their blog tells of trips farther afield. Yesterday, their post was written by Dr. Paula Piilonen, a museum mineralogist. She chronicled one day on the Students on Ice Arctic Expedition, where they searched for interesting minerals in Greenland and followed a humpback whale in their zodiacs! Enjoying the environment should not be forgotten in the urge to protect it! nature museum
