Wildlife Conservation and Management research cluster formerly known as the Department of Zoology, Faculty of Life Sciences in 1982, and is now known as Wildlife Research Group (WRG). Our research focuses on solving the wildlife conflict issue, extinction, conservation, ecology and genetics as well as understanding the ecology of wildlife diseases.
