Life Sciences Gallery

See how nature maintains its dynamic balance and how the human "footprint" is influencing and changing that balance. This gallery is a celebration of Saskatchewan's rich landscapes and biological diversity.

  • A Tour of the Province

    Explore the diversity and beauty of Saskatchewan landscapes. The province is part of four ecozones, the Taiga Shield, the Boreal Shield, the Boreal Plain, and the Prairie. Each of these ecozones are depicted in great detail through our award winning dioramas and displays. Thousands of Saskatchewan species are displayed from the large, like the moose, to the small and hidden, like the goldenrod gallmoth caterpillar.

  • Global View
    Through connections associated with the climate system and migration, Saskatchewan is linked to other parts of the world especially Arctic and tropical locations. Many of "our" songbirds are actually tropical species that fly north for a few months to breed. They spend much of their time in Central and South America, sharing a range of habitats with resident species.

  • The Human Factor

    Over the last 200 years, humanity has become a major, global force. Our actions are upsetting the dynamic balance of many social and ecological systems. Explore the regional and global changes associated with human activity and potential solutions to the issues they cause. Many of the problems we face are reflections of the industrialized world view and lifestyles that isolate people from nature and from each other.
