HOPE for the Future – Heritage, Outreach and Preservation of Entomology

HOPE for the Future




HOPE for the Future is an ambitious project to protect and share the Museum of Natural History's unique and irreplaceable British insect collection.

Containing over one million specimens - including dozens of iconic species now considered extinct in the UK - it offers us an extraordinary window into the natural world and the ways it has changed over the last 200 years.
