Welcome to the Lingnan Natural History Collection!

The collection started in 2019 to contribute to the goals of Hong Kong's Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) and it is funded by The Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF) from the Hong Kong Government (ECF 86/2081). Our first goal is to document the herpetological diversity across Hong Kong, and to become an important resource for research, conservation, and education.

The collection includes: 1) specimens preserved in ethanol, 2) images of live and preserved specimens, and 3) tissue samples preserved in ethanol and RNA later.
