They protect over 35 million specimens, dating back 4.5 billion years.

They’re a resource for Southern California teachers.

They are an authority on the “big picture” of the planet, the natural and the cultural world.

And they track the Earth’s biodiversity, because knowing what is out there is the first step to conservation.
