A Little Help from Our Friends

The Scripps Oceanographic Collections make up the largest and most complete university-based oceanographic collection in the world. Comprised of millions of biological and geological marine specimens, the collections are irreplaceable because they record the state of the ocean environment at specific points in time over the past century. They tell a unique and evolving story of life on Earth and provide answers to questions about our planet's future.
