‘Animals don’t do sexual identity; they just do sex.’
From same-sex sexual behaviour in giraffes and penguins to the scientists working in the field of zoology. How do the labels and categories we give animals affect the way we interact with the natural world?
Our volunteer guides share their personal selection of fascinating stories about gender and sex in the animal world at the Museum of Zoology.
Please meet your guide in the Whale Hall approx. 5-10 mins before the start of the tour.
Tours will last approximately 40 mins and are led by a volunteer guide.
Please note that the tours will involve walking around the Museum for the duration.
Tours are aimed at an adult audience. However children and teenagers are very welcome to attend with adults.
