The fishing industry, turtles and their protection and the harvesting of sea-eggs (urchins) are all examined in the exhibitis and are all topics that continue to be relevant today. Emphasis is placed on increasing knowledge of Barbados’ natural environment and its protection. Species of animals that are now extinct and those which are endangered are on display.
