New Outreach Kit: Marine Life Beaty Box
In addition to our Whale Flipper X-Ray, Inquiry, Seashore and Forest Beaty Boxes, we're excited to now offer a Marine Life themed outreach kit.

The theme for this Beaty Box is the interconnectedness of marine organisms and the impact of climate change. Under this theme, students will use critical thinking and problem solving skills to learn more about:

  • The relationships between the  littlest and largest creatures in the ocean
  • The impact of extinction and climate change on marine food webs
  • The role of sustainable practices in shaping the future of the ocean
By the end of the lesson, your group should feel more comfortable describing the relationships between organisms and the way they are impacted by climate change.

Beaty Boxes are a great option if you're unable to bring the entire class out to the museum on a field trip. They are loaned out for 14-day periods, and you can pick them up whenever the museum is open. Learn more about the Beaty Box program. The Marine Life box is available for classrooms starting September 1, 2019.

About the Museum
The Beaty Biodiversity Museum strives to inspire an understanding of biodiversity, its origins, and importance to humans through collections-based research, education and outreach. As Vancouver’s natural history museum, we work to promote a greater sense of collective responsibility for the biodiversity of British Columbia, Canada, and the world. The unique combination of world-class research, paired with beautiful, compelling exhibits, strives to make the research conducted at UBC more accessible to the public.
Explore the university’s spectacular biological collections, with 20,000 square feet of exhibits showcasing over 500 permanent exhibits. Among our two million treasured specimens are a 26-metre-long blue whale skeleton suspended in the atrium, the third-largest fish collection in Canada, and myriad fossils, shells, insects, fungi, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and plants from around BC and across the world.
