The Department of Zoology is home to a thriving community of scientists who share a deep interest in how animals develop, function, interact and evolve.
We take pride in our world-class, wide-impact research and in our enthusiastic, high-quality teaching. Maintaining these exceptionally high standards requires a sustained input of resources, and an essential element of this is the support from donations.
The Museum of Zoology is home to a huge variety of recent and fossil animals, including collections made by great naturalists of the past. Its collections include rare and extinct animals, a great auk skin and treasures from Darwin's Beagle voyage.
Our tropical field course for undergraduates is only possible as a result of generous support from our alumni and friends. Your support funds bursaries, which ensure that students can attend the course, regardless of their financial situation.
