Alfred Russel Wallace and the Birds of Paradise with Sir David Attenborough


Sir David Attenborough Thumb

Birds of paradise, a group of birds found mainly in New Guinea, have captivated onlookers for centuries with their bright colors and elaborate displays.

To cap off a day-long celebration of the life of Alfred Russel Wallace, a naturalist and co-founder of evolutionary biology along with Charles Darwin, celebrated wildlife filmmaker Sir David Attenborough speaks about his and Wallace’s shared passion for these beautiful birds.

This special lecture took place at the Museum on November 12, 2013.
