The Department of Zoology was initially established in 1932 as the Biological-Pedagogical Institute, and was one of the first schools at Tel Aviv University. Over the years, the department has become the largest academic center for zoological research in Israel. Some of its members have played key roles in establishing the various nature conservation institutions and organizations in the country.
Today, the Department of Zoology is still one of the largest departments in the Faculty of Life Sciences. It comprises almost forty faculty members and nearly eighty graduate students. The department also encompasses the I. Meier Segals Garden for Zoological Research , the only center of its type in the country, offering unique research and teaching facilities as well as the zoological collections of the National Museum of Natural History at Tel-Aviv University . The Department of Zoology offers a wide variety of courses for graduate and undergraduate students, as well as educational activities designed for schoolchildren and the general public, organized through the Nature Campus program and the Animals & Society Project.
