The Mammalogy Department is scheduled to relocate to a newly renovated facility this summer.
In preparation for the move, and effective immediately, the collection will be inaccessible to visiting researchers and loans until further notice.
We will continue to update our moving, visitation, and loan schedule. Thank you for your patience and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
