Species diversity research
Maintenance and management of specimens and tissue have been collected for more than 40 years.
We have more than 50,000 valuable samples, not just reptiles, and our task is to organize and catalog them for the future. We do not have enough space or freezers and refrigerators. We are also short on manpower.
