No.1 Steve the Stuffer
A man of numerous trades and skill-sets, Steve Massum is the chief taxidermist at the Falkland Islands Museum and National Trust in Stanley. He sees his work as a means to bring about awareness and understanding of the plight of animal species in this part of the world. If there was one animal he’d have liked to work on that he hasn’t, it would have been a Bee Hummingbird, but his eyesight, he feels, is past it now.
This is the second of seven videos in our series that capture the uniqueness, the quirkiness and the complexity surrounding the Falkland Islands, while ultimately providing more intimate insight into the islands as a whole.
