See science in action in the Cocoon's Specimen Preparation Area.

Museum curators Jovita Yesilyurt and Ranee Prakash are working with V Factor volunteers to prepare botanical specimens for digitisation, bringing the historical Banksian collection into the twenty-first century.

Look in on work being done, uncover more about the collection and explore some of the secrets of Joseph Banks's Herbarium with our volunteers outside the lab.
