The Lost Language of Nature

Lost Language of Nature brings stories of animals and nature from around the world to Saffron Walden Museum.

Part of a year-long project to begin to recognise and discuss the global origins of the museum’s taxidermy items and to respect, share and record their international stories through community work and exhibitions.

The focus of our community work is to collect both local and international stories and cultural information about our taxidermy specimens from the public.
