Webinar Series | Iconic, Extinct & Historically Important specimens

October 8, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


This third edition of a series of digital showcases and webinars depicting the irreplaceable value of South African natural science collections to science and society features some of South Africa’s iconic, extinct and historically important specimens. The showcase linked to this webinar can be found here.

These specimens record the natural history of animals and plants, both existing
and extinct. This record contributes to our understanding of the natural world
and evolution, especially in cases where specimens cannot be collected again.
It is important to our historical and cultural identity, as well as instilling a sense
of national cohesion, inspiration and belonging.

Collections institutions are the proud custodians of these important specimens,
holding them in trust for the South African public.
