America's oldest natural history institution dust itself off

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - America's oldest natural history institution has no meaning of going the way of the dinosaur, but its nearly two centuries in survival have been nearly as bumpy as the hide of a Carnotaurus.

The school of Natural Sciences, battered by finances problems, is crafting a multimillion - dollar plan to renovate its exhibits, stock up its coffers and reinvigorate its staff in time for the venerable museum,s 200th birthday in 2012.

Certainly a tall order, but it's in keeping with the rule that applies to the millions of plants and animals in its valued collection: Adapt or die.
