    Zoology is the study of animals, examining their characteristics and how they evolve and react. It is central to our understanding of the world. The human beings should have an appreciation and understanding for animals and Zoology as branch of science enables us to learn about various dimensions of animal life. It helps us to understand animal biodiversity. We aim to conduct and organize all the activities and events related to zoological studies.

There are a good number of bio- visual charts, animal models in the laboratory, besides, enough quantity of glassware and dissection material. The departmental museum has got rich collection of specimens of diverse type of animal fauna from protozoa to mammals. It also contains models of many animal species., our department conducts regular field trips and zoological tours to zoological gardens and centres of apiculture, sericulture and fisheries.
