Encounter the pets, the pests and the public service animals in the National Archives' collection at this fascinating seminar.

Meet heroes like Horrie the war dog as we dig up stories of animals in military defence. Dive into the scientific discoveries made on CSIRO whaling expeditions, and observe a menagerie of critters of all shapes and sizes in the National Archives’ photographic collections.

Before or after the seminar, take a look at our new exhibition Wild West: Animals in the Archives.
