NCB Naturalis

In 2010 three institutes combined their collections forming NCB Naturalis, the Dutch centre of excellence for biodiversity studies. Herewith becoming one of the largest collections in the world, with over 37 million objects. We were asked to create a film in which the past, present and future of the organisation was visualised.

Innumerable varieties of exotic plants, animals, shells and other natural history specimens were collected throughout the years for scientific research, all with the aim of better understanding life in all its forms. This started a long, long time ago, when our ancestors traveled and explored our planet.

The scientific information we extract from this collection is vital in increasing our knowledge of biodiversity. All the data obtained from research is currently being digitised as part of the FES-project. In the future, people all over the world will be able to access information that will help the spread of knowledge about diversity among plants and animals.
