At Matson’s Laboratory, it’s what we do and who we are. We are a wildlife lab that works for wildlife conservationists, like you, because we believe in protecting and managing the animals that we share this planet with.
Matson’s Laboratory ages more than 100,000 animals from all over the world each year. Biologists send us thousands of teeth at a time and they use our age results to set sustainable hunting quotas. These quotas help conserve our populations of game animals while ensuring hunting opportunities for future generations. Individual hunters also submit teeth from their harvest(s) each year, whether it be their child’s first white-tailed deer, or the black bear they have been tracking on trail cams for years. Researchers and graduate students send us teeth from live-captured animals and our data helps them study populations of interest such as endangered and threatened species. Our expertise and wildlife lab services encompass many different areas within the wildlife community but one thing we all have in common is our shared love for wildlife. We hope your passion for the great outdoors and all that inhabits it leads you to Matson’s Laboratory.
