National Paleontological Research Collections, GNS Science
The GNS Science fossil collection is the most extensive fossil collection in New Zealand and includes collections made over 130 years by amateurs and professionals within and outside GNS Science(and its predecessor the NZ Geological Survey).
GNS Science, and before that the New Zealand Geological Survey, has developed over many decades (Fleming 1964. N.Z. Jour. Geol. & Geophys., 7(4); p. 887-8), a policy to make available, wherever possible, its fossil specimens for scientific study. GNS welcomes visiting paleontologists and provides space and facilities for examining specimens in its care.
