BE THE BACKBONE OF OUR INVERTEBRATE COLLECTION

The Georg Statz fossil collection has been through a lot. After years of excavation, the 5,000 specimens in this collection were forced into hiding to escape the destruction of World War II in Germany. Luckily the collections survived, leaving us with a fascinating look at Europe 25-million-years ago.

With the help of a National Science Foundation grant, NHMLA's Invertebrate Paleontology team is working diligently to digitize the Statz collection so people from all over the world can study these long-dead insects. A large part of this undertaking is proper cataloging and storage. Enter you, the generous donor.

We need your help to house these priceless specimens, so buy us a box, contribute a shelf or help us purchase a shiny new cabinet in memory of Gerog Statz!
