With more than two million fossil invertebrates (animals without a spinal cord), the Invertebrate Paleontology Collection provides a comprehensive record of marine life through time. The collection contains diverse specimens from all over the world, including molluscs, trilobites, sea-lilies, brachiopods, corals, and many other important fossil groups. The collection also proudly houses one of the largest stratigraphic collections in the world of Devonian specimens from Western Canada. These fossils are a valuable and engaging resource for students, researchers and the public.
