Fin whale in the Slovenian Museum of Natural History

On Thursday, 15th September 2011, Morigenos team attended the official opening of the exhibition titled "The mysterious death of young Leonora", where a skeleton of a fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) was displayed. In spring 2003, a dead female fin whale was found floating in Piran Bay. The skeleton was acquired by the Slovenian Museum of Natural History. Their experts turned 10 tonnes of decomposing carcass into a beautiful white skeleton that is now displayed in one of the museum's halls. This is the largest exhibit ever acquired by this museum in its 190 years of history. It was given a name Leonora.

The exhibition, with its video footage, audio effects, interactive presentations, diverse images and interesting texts, takes the visitors through marine depths, where they can learn all about who Leonora was, where she came from, who are her relatives and what were her life habits. Even though the cause of death of young Leonora remains a mystery, the exhibition draws attention to the threats affecting whales and are mostly caused by human activities.

We are proud to invite you to have a look, because Morigenos had an important role in the making of the exhibition. We contributed several photographs and provided information, while Morigenos president Tilen Genov is one of the authors of the new educational booklet "Fin whale in the Slovenian Museum of Natural History".

The exhibition will be open from 16th September 2011 to 16th of September 2012, every day between 10:00 and 18:00, during Tuesdays also untill 20:00. Each first Sunday of the month the entry is free.

Brazdasti kit v Prirodoslovnem muzeju Slovenije

V četrtek, 15. 9. 2011, smo se člani društva Morigenos udeležili slavnostne otvoritve razstave Skrivnostna smrt mlade Leonore, kjer je bilo predstavljeno okostje brazdastega kita (Balaenoptera physalus). Spomladi leta 2003 je v Piranski zaliv naplavilo truplo mlade samice te vrste. Okostje je pripadlo Prirodoslovnemu muzeju Slovenije, njihovi strokovnjaki pa so iz več kot desettonske gmote razpadajočega trupla pridobili čudovito belo okostje, ki se boči pod stropom dvorane. Ta največji eksponat, kar jih je muzej pridobil v svoji 190 letni zgodovini, so poimenovali Leonora.

Razstava s filmskimi posnetki, zvočnimi učinki, interaktivnimi predstavitvami, bogatim slikovnim gradivom in zanimivimi besedili obiskovalca popelje v morske globine, kjer izve, kdo je bila mlada Leonora, od kod je prišla, kdo so njeni sorodniki in kakšne so bile njene življenjske navade. Čeprav vzrok smrti mlade Leonore ostaja skrivnost, razstava opozarja na dejavnike, ki ogrožajo kite in so večinoma posledica človekovega delovanja.

S ponosom vas vabimo na ogled, kajti tudi društvo Morigenos je imelo pomembno vlogo pri soustvarjanju razstave. Prispevali smo več fotografij in informacij, ki so postale del razstave, predsednik društva Tilen Genov pa je eden izmed avtorjev nove izobraževalne publikacije "Brazdasti kit v Prirodoslovnem muzeju Slovenije".

Razstava je na ogled od 16. 9. 2011 do 16. 9. 2012, vsak dan med 10. in 18. uro, ob četrtkih do 20. ure.
Vsako prvo nedeljo v mesecu je vstop v muzej prost.
