Welcome to the RBINS Collection of Recent Vertebrates

In historic terms, the recent vertebrate collection is one of our institute's oldest collections. When it was first started, in the middle of the 19th century, it mainly consisted of indigenous and tropical birds. Since those early days the collection has grown to 600,000 specimens of birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.
