The ANWC holds almost 200 000 irreplaceable scientific specimens, including skins, skeletons, specimens in spirit, bird egg collections, a wildlife sound library and frozen tissue.

Research conducted at the ANWC addresses the diversity, evolution, and conservation of Australia's wildlife, focusing on the taxonomy (scientific classification), systematics and phylogenetics (study of evolutionary relationships among organisms and the classification to reflect them) and biogeography of Australasian terrestrial vertebrates.
