The Mammal Collection at the Joseph Moore Museum includes more than 4,000 specimens from 26 countries and 44 different states. Almost 2,000 of these have been collected throughout Indiana, making the museum a vital resource for research on native species. Of particular note is the museum’s extensive collection of bats from around the world collected by Jim Cope. 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.
