Zoology

Zoology is the scientific study of animals, covering the incredible diversity of invertebrates (such as spiders, insects, snails, clams and worms) and vertebrates (fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals).

The Zoology collections are an irreplaceable archive of animals that spans over 125 years. Numbering almost 100,000 specimens, they include significant provincial holdings of butterflies and moths (38,000), mammals (20,000), molluscs (4,300) and birds (4,000). Collections of fishes and amphibians and reptiles are more modest, as are holdings from outside the province. The Zoology collections are a resource for researchers around the world, and form the basis of Museum exhibits and interpretation.
