A novel art exhibition highlighting the best in wildlife thermal photography returns this Autumn to the At-Bristol Café. It is accompanied by a special Science Café discussion event at 8pm on Tuesday 9th November. The exhibition can be see both inside and outside the café and runs from October 11th to November 9th 2010.
The show combines some stunning thermal images of endangered species paired with beautiful conventional photographs of the same animals. Thermal imaging is already used extensively in science as a way of detecting human and animal body temperatures. This exhibition highlights the value of infrared thermal imaging to exotic and endangered animals as a way of studying their behaviours and minimising stress. It returns to the At-Bristol Café following a successful showing earlier in the year. For more details of the Science Café, see: www.at-bristol.org.uk/whatson.html & www.sciencecafe.co.uk.
