The Mammal Collection

The Mammal Collection at the Joseph Moore Museum maintains 4,332 total specimens from twenty-six countries and forty-four different states. Almost two thousand of these have been collected throughout Indiana, making the museum a vital resource for research into native species. As well, the collection contains specimens from such places as the Peru, Canada, Jamaica, Panama and Austria. Of particular note is the museum’s extensive collection of bat species from all around the world. For decades much of the collection has been prepared by Earlham College students and faculty working side by side, demonstrating how JMM values being able to provide opportunities for students to obtain hands-on experience.
