First National Conference on Zoology

November 28, 2020 – November 30, 2020

In the last century, Nepal’s rich faunal biodiversity has become considerably depleted due to rapid population growth, excessive resource extraction and infrastructure developments. As a result, the country's wilderness areas marginalized and habitats are degraded and fragmented resulting increased threats to species. Under this situation, a need was felt for an academic institution to educate, train and produce qualified man power for teaching, research and conservation. Such a thought process led to the setting up of the Department of Zoology under the Institute of Science and Technology (IoST) in Tribhuvan University (TU). Department of Zoology was established in 1965 with the mandates of producing qualified man power on Zoology, carrying out research, and advising Government on matters of faunal resources.  Later, it was upgraded as the Central Department of Zoology, Tribhuvan University (CDZ-TU) in 1987. CDZ- TU has now become a leading institute of Zoology in Nepal using its expertise to advance knowledge and influencing public policy and perception on faunal resources.Till today, around two thousand graduates have been produced from CDZ. CDZ graduates working in different fields declared the formation of “Alumni Association of the Central Department of Zoology (AACDZ)” in 2019 at the 54th Anniversary Celebration of CDZ to promote the interests, welfare and aims of CDZ-TU and its alumni by establishing and maintaining a mutually beneficial relationship among the members. The CDZ-TU and AACDZ are organizing the First National Conference on Zoology: Biodiversity in a Changing World. Considering the current health crisis due to COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will be virtual.
