Meet the Taxidermist Saving Long-Dead Animals from Decay | WIRED Originals


Lucie Mascord has a one-of-a-kind job, she fixes, repairs and conserves bad and decaying taxidermy for museums all round the world. It’s a poorly understood trade, but she’s convinced it has a long future.

She shows us her collection of eyes, what she’s working on and explains some of the misconceptions about her trade. Including, that she’s a “conservator” not a “conservative”.
