Save Dippy

This petition had 32,521 supporters

Dippy the diplodocus has been the centre piece in the Natural History Museum for 109 years.

He has inspired generations of schoolchildren to look back to the earth's past and help them think about looking after the planet's future.

But now after all those years, this important relic is being removed. 

Dippy is loved around the world and is a monument of British heritage.

Replacing Dippy with a blue whale skeleton would threaten this and lead to many unhappy faces in the UK youth.

We demand Dippy is saved and remains in the main hall forever.
