While we do not actively maintain research collections of birds or mammals, roughly 1,800 specimens of birds and more than 6,000 mammals, mostly from Texas and northern Mexico, were collected, mostly from the 1930s–1960s.

The full collections were transferred to Texas Tech University's Natural Science Research Laboratory. Contact heath.garner@ttu.edu for information.

Smaller collections of birds and mammals are maintained for teaching at the University of Texas at Austin.
