The Institute of Biology’s Vertebrate Museum houses almost 1,300 skin specimens of terrestrial vertebrates collected from the 1950s to the 1980s. Another set of specimens, numbering into thousands, have been collected since the 1990s, preserved in fluid and are currently being catalogued. The Vertebrate Museum offers guided tours upon advanced request and species identification. We also provide training on various terrestrial wildlife survey techniques.
