Aliens touching down at Kitimat museum

An exhibit on alien species will be hosted at the Kitimat museum.

Beginning May 19, the Kitimat Museum will host an exhibit on aliens.

Aliens meaning invasive species, that is.

Aliens Among Us is a travelling Royal BC Museum exhibition on British Columbia’s invasive species.  The exhibition runs to August 11 and invites visitors to interact with some of the province’s best-known and least-loved invasive species.

“There are over 4,000 alien species in the province and that number grows each year” said Gavin Hanke, Curator of Vertebrate Zoology at the Royal BC Museum.  “Some of these aliens are invasive – they spread quickly, threaten native wildlife and are hard to control.”
