SBCC Robert J. Profant Teaching Museum

Just under 3,000 specimens (mostly marine) are accessioned and catalogued using the NSF (National Science Foundation) 'Specify' database. The specimens are also searchable online and many local species have online images in their natural habitat as well as groups, individuals and unique features. Besides the real marine environment, this is one of the many resources used during biology labs at SBCC.  Visit the Robert Profant Teaching Museum  web site
