David Gray
Arctic Biologist and Research Associate, Canadian Museum of Nature:

The Canadian Museum of Nature is a collection as well as an exhibit institution, so when you come back from an expedition, this is the place where all your new information or new specimen is deposited. So it is a long and sometimes a complicated procedure to get all of your specimens identified, stabilized and in many cases there have to treated or cleaned or whatever.
