We are delighted that the Booth Museum of Natural History in Dyke Road, Brighton, has taken a positive step in order to reduce the amount of plastic they sell. And, as part of this change, they are now stocking Sussex Wildlife Trust items, such as My Wild Life sweatshirt (£32) and All About That Bass t-shirt (£19.95).
Both are available in various sizes, ranging from small to extra large. The shop is also now selling Sussex Wildlife Trust KeepCups, packs of Christmas cards and wildlife calendars.
The Booth Museum was founded as a Victorian collector’s private museum, and now aims to bring natural history to life with its interactive displays and various ‘hands on’ activities. On 15th November at 7pm, the museum is holding an event to mark the 250th anniversary of the extinction of Steller’s Sea Cow.
