Ecological Thinking and Action


Culture Declares Emergency

Manchester Museum declares a climate emergency. Still.  Again.  More than ever.

At Manchester Museum, we are urgently transforming how we support ecological thinking and action, build more sustainable futures and inspire cooperation and change in our city.

Letters to Insects

More than 32,000 species are threatened with extinction; that is 27% of all assessed species. Today, some 3,000 insects are known to be vulnerable, endangered or at risk of extinction. In our Beauty and the Beasts exhibition the public were invited to write a Letter to the Insect in response to the threats that many of them are facing.
