The National Zoological
Collection is an institute of the University of Suriname. It's main task is
to develop an overview of the fauna of Suriname and build a reference
collection for scientific and educational purposes.
This is achieved by studying and/or collecting and preserving
both vertebrates and invertebrates from different parts of the country.
Most of the collecting is combined with scientific research
concerning either the biology, ecology and/or the distribution of one, or
several animal species, or the composition and status of a certain ecosystem.
