Sixty Second Species is an online event, taking place every Wednesday throughout summer at 12 midday.

Join the Manchester Museum team to discover more about the animal and plant life living on your doorstep and beyond.

Each week the vivarium team at the Museum will present a video fact file about an animal or plant. This means that every week you’ll get to hear and discover more about a new species.

Exciting stuff.
