Specimen or Personal Collection Donations


More often than not, collecting insects is a labor of love. Personal collections can be the result of many days, months, years, or sometimes decades of effort. However, at some point a partial or complete collection is in need of a new home.

If you or someone you know has a collection that may be ready for donation, please reach out the WIRC Director.

Learn more about our specimen donation policy in the WIRC KnowledgeBase.
