Birds of Paradise is a story of nature’s most fascinating feathered flirts – the extravagant birds that have inspired a recent social media craze. A science exhibition, art show and natural history display in one, Birds of Paradise, presented by Highland Capital Management, will take visitors on an expedition to a New Guinea rainforest to witness the spectacular plumage and dazzling dance moves of the family of birds known as birds-of-paradise. Through beautiful National Geographic photography, follow the adventures of two determined researchers who made 18 trips to New Guinea over eight years to complete the first survey of all 39 known species of birds-of-paradise. The video and photographs they brought back, combined with the exhibition artifacts and interactive experiences, provide exciting learning opportunities for visitors of every age.
