Hall of Biodiversity

The Hall of Biodiversity presents a vivid portrait of the beauty and abundance of life on Earth, highlighting both biodiversity and the factors that threaten it. Ecological biodiversity is illustrated by a 2,500-square-foot walk-through diorama that depicts part of the Dzanga-Sangha rain forest, one of Earth’s most diverse ecosystems. Featuring more than 160 species of flora and fauna, the diorama uses video and sound to re-create the ecosystem at dawn, at an elephant clearing and degraded by human intervention along a road.

Re-envisioned in 2012, the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall features an exhibition charting Theodore Roosevelt’s journey from a budding naturalist exploring the Museum’s halls to an elected leader with a deep commitment to conservation. CBC scientists worked with the AMNH Exhibition Department on content that brings the importance of conservation issues in this country sharply into focus, and continue to curate content on the interactive Theodore Roosevelt Timeline.
