The Zoological collection contains approximately half million catalogued specimens spanning 173 years and all continents except for Antarctica. The majority of the collections represent Natural History Collections from Nova Scotia, with synoptic collections in several areas, reflecting the interests of Curatorial staff over the years. Those collections have a strong bias towards Lepidoptera (Moths and Butterflies) and Fish, Amphibians and Reptiles.
As a species we also leave a prominent ecological footprint. We just have to remember that sometimes, that footprint is indelible.
