The fauna collection housed at Oranim was bequeathed to the college in the late 1930s by the environmentalist and co-founder of Oranim, Yehoshua Margolin, who was a science teacher. It is among the largest collections of its kind, including rare stuffed birds and mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. The collection is unique, and has great scientific value. It is used extensively by researchers and the college’s teaching faculty.
