The taxidermy field spans the globe, having spoken with other taxidermists in the industry, we agree that there needs to be more diversity in the field.

This page provides a catalogue of resources I have compiled for QTBIPOC and any one who wishes to get involved with taxidermy. It includes legal directories and associations around the globe, log book sheets, reading lists and tool lists.
