Rewilding Vancouver
Remember. Reconnect. Rewild.

February 27, 2014 - September 1, 2014

The first major exhibition in Canada to explore our relationship with nature through the lens of historical ecology, Rewilding Vancouver brings this new way of exploring the past to the forefront using Vancouver as the subject. The exhibition is comprised of taxidermy specimens, 3D models, soundscapes, videos and photo interventions that challenge our perception of what is natural to Vancouver. Visitors will discover a changing-of-the-guard when it comes to the region's wildlife, with ravens, wolves and elk fading as crows, coyotes and black-tailed deer settled in.

Rewilding Vancouver also challenges us to envision new streetscapes that feature unearthed fish-bearing streams long hidden below city streets. A life-sized creation of the now extinct Steller's Sea Cow is one of many highlights of this exhibition.
