Toulouse: the naturalization of a jaguar live at the Museum – France Bleu

For the public it is an opportunity both to learn more about an endangered animal, the jaguar, but also to discover a little-known profession, that of taxidermist. For this, head to the Toulouse museum where until this Saturday evening, the rehabilitation of a jaguar skin and its installation on a form is presented live to the public, to allow it to be displayed in the establishment's collections.

It's concrete, we can see matter -Brian Aïello, the taxidermist

Entertainment takes place in the galleries of the museum, near the exhibitions. It is accessible to all audiences, the least uplifting phases of the operation are not shown. The objective, says the taxidermist, is above all to "to be able to exchange"with the public in order to make them aware of endangered breeds, including the jaguar, and to make them discover a profession that is often overlooked and poorly understood.

"I would like to do this as a job" – Paul

On the first day of the demonstration, the public came in large numbers to the naturalization workshop to observe the work of Brian Aïello.
