Our research team frequently needs volunteers

to help with research tasks in the field, in the collection, or in the lab. 


The Burke Museum is also accepting donations of any size to help

fund student projects, support the natural history collection,

and sponsor international research expeditions to better understand

and conserve aquatic ecosystems around the world.



Your donation to the Burke Ichthyology Excellence fund helps us  discover new biodiversity, understand evolutionary history, explore ecological interactions, and utlimately conserve populations.
