Sievert Rohwer, Curator of Birds and Professor of Biology at the University of Washington Burke Museum (UWBM) visited the Natiuonal University of SIngapore's Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR) between 10th - 15th May 2005.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two institutions on Friday, 13th May 2005, by Sievert Rohwer and Peter K. L. Ng (Director, RMBR), to formally acquire and preserve bird and mammal specimens for future research by scientists in Singapore, the United States and throughout the world.

We are archiving these specimens to advance the fields of systematics, taxonomy, biogeography, conservation, and natural history of the birds and mammals of Singapore and other areas of Southeast Asia.
