At Naturalis Biodiversity Center we want to describe, understand and explore biodiversity for human wellbeing and the future of our planet.
We have already been doing this day in, day out for hundreds of years. We collect, conserve and study animals, plants and rocks. Our collection now contains 37 million objects and that makes it one of the largest in the world. And it is still growing each day thanks to the worldwide fieldwork of our researchers and many amateur scientists.
