200 YEARS OF ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE: A CELEBRATION
Celebrate with us, the life of Alfred Russel Wallace, the Forgotten Evolutionist
Who is he, and why are we celebrating?
Born in Wales 200 years ago, Alfred Russel Wallace grew up to be one of the most important Naturalists who ever lived, but one you have probably never heard of!
In the Golden Age of exploration and discovery, Wallace travelled the rainforests of the World, and along with his more famous compatriot, Charles Darwin, developed theories of Natural Selection and Evolution. We have all heard of Darwin but why do most of us not know Wallace?
Find out at Plantasia Tropical Zoo’s new treehouse exhibition space. It has been transformed into a fabulous representation of Alfred Russel Wallace’s jungle research hut in the Malay Archipelago, where you can learn of his fascinating tales and discoveries, and even become an Explorer yourself; which hat will you wear?
This amazing exhibition space has been developed with Museum Wales, and is free with all general admission tickets…..
Join us throughout 2023 to celebrate the life and work of this incredible Welsh evolutionary genius.
Please be aware that access will be restricted weekdays between 10am-2pm when in use by school groups
