HOW CAN YOU HELP?

We have already attracted much of the £5 million required but we need your help to raise a further £3 million in order to complete the project and provide a Museum that our collections deserve.

Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows.

If you are interested in making a donation to the Museum refurbishment project or for further information please contact: Professor Paul Brakefield, Director, Museum of Zoology Downing Street, Cambridge CB2 3EJ

Above: Newton's Parakeet or the Rodrigues Parakeet (Psittacula exsul) is an extinct species of parrot that was endemic to the Mascarene island of Rodrigues in the western Indian Ocean and these two specimens, a male and a female, are the only known examples in the world. The female was collected in 1871 by George Jenner, then the magistrate of Rodrigues and the male was shot on 14 August 1874 by a Mr. Vandorous.
