Tooth & Claw: Living alongside Britain's predators

10 November 2007 to 24 February 2008

How do we really feel about our wild predators and why? Love them or loathe them, their need to kill other animals to survive provokes extreme reactions in us. Through a series of case studies led by powerful wildlife photography, this exhibition explores our fears, prejudices and inconsistencies and reminds us of our place in nature - as the most powerful predator of all.
