Welcome to Lethbridge College’s Virtual Wildlife Project and home of the digital Hubbard Collection. The Hubbard Collection is one of Canada’s largest collections of full body taxidermy mammals.
Alfred Hubbard, the donor of the collection, had a dream to see his collection become accessible and used in the K-12 and post secondary systems. Funding from the Inukshuk Wireless Learning Plan has assisted in digitizing and sharing this collection.
Digitizing this collection expands its reach beyond Southern Alberta, providing a global resource to educators, researchers, students, community and industry. Students can virtually view and manipulate specimens from multiple angles.
Additional features and resources include
• detailed content information with peer reviewed research
• video and multimedia files of many different species
• information on the animal's living region
• tracks and signs
• learning activities
Hubbard specimens are displayed in a graphical image rich manner. Further extensions of Lethbridge College’s Virtual Wildlife Project are ongoing.
