Humans aren’t the only ones documented in the collections at the Archives of Ontario. ANIMALIA explores how our relationships with animals—and the methods we’ve used to document these relationships—have changed over time. The exhibit shows how fish, bears, horses, dogs, and birds fit into Ontario’s history. The ways humans have recorded, remembered, and affected these animals says as much about us as it does about them.
