David Carter and Liz Wilder Entimologists

"When I was a child, I was already fascinated with insects. I don't particularly know why I chose beetles in the first place, but I've always had a fascination for them... "
—David Carter

David Carter and the collection

"When I came here to the museum I actually was given the opportunity to work with moths, and I rather welcomed this because I felt it would be nice to look at something different, a new challenge. And subsequent to that, of course, I worked with other groups of insects here also. Wherever you look in this department, there's always something fascinating to work with."
