About This Blog

composite of research and collection employees at work in the field, in the collections and talking to the public

At the Canadian Museum of Nature we look after 14.6 million specimens. We also do research on those fossils, minerals, plants and animals in our collections. And, we tell the world about what we have learned.

This Blog brings you behind the scenes with our Research and Collections team. Whether it be tales from the lab, from out in the field or from meeting the public, we hope you learn something new about nature and are inspired to further explore the natural world.

      Thanks for you interest. The maps used in It’s Hard to Get There from Here were available from Parks Canada in 2011. Perhaps you might enquire with them about obtaining the images? In case it helps, these are the URLs where we got the images in 2011:
