Small Red-eyed Tree Frog - 60 Second Species

Fly to Costa Rica for today's #60SecondSpecies and meet the small red-eyed leaf frog. This little amphibian has lots of webbing between its fingers and toes, acting like small parachutes that help the male make giant leaps during the mating season. 🐸💚✨

Manchester Museum, Museum Development North West and The Carbon Literacy Project are delighted to announce we have been awarded an Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grant for an exciting partnership project.✨

#RootsAndBranches will accelerate the museum sector's response to the climate crisis, and will allow us to scale up the roll-out of Carbon Literacy training across museums around England. We aim to train 1,500 museum professionals and volunteers and certify them as Carbon Literate over the next two years. 🌍

The 'branches' of the project will create an environmentally aware and active sector, and Manchester Museum will host the 'roots', creating a nationally significant co-working hub for cultural environmental action.
