Department of Zoology organizes an array of co-curricular activities every academic year to make learning beyond the classroom fascinating. Activities include seminars, workshops, guest lectures, interclass, interdisciplinary competitions, field trips etc.

The department also organizes activities related to the field of Life science to coincide with the National Science day. Vermicomposting workshop, apiculture workshop, ornamental fish keeping, Workshop for school teachers on practical skills in Life sciences, activities related to wild life conservation etc are also organized by the department.

Department conducts several interclass competitions under the banner “Zoo-Gen” Activities like, sketching, visual cues, quiz, cross word, drama, treasure hunt, and photography.

Field trips are organized regularly by the Department to provide the students an insight into the recent advances in research work in Zoology and also as a part of Industry - Academia collaboration. Some of the places visited are ICAR - Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore, National Drosophila Stock Centre of Mysore University, Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry college, Hebbal and ICAR-National Institute of Animal Nutrition and Physiology, Adugodi, National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS).

Students are encouraged to present papers in National and International conferences and also to publish their research work in the in-house research journal for students called Scientia. Alumni are invited to give talks related to career guidance to the students. The department also brings out a student edited annual newsletter, “Genesis” which helps the students to empower themselves in the emerging field of life science. This also provides an important documentation record of the departmental activities. The Zoological Museum houses several rare specimens and also forms an important learning resource.

Eco Club

To empower students to think about more eco-friendly approaches and participate in environment conservation activities.

To promote awareness among the students regarding environmental issues and knowledge on biodiversity and sensitise them on sustainability.

OBJECTIVES To inculcate the concept of green environment among the students through various innovative methods and to create awareness for conserving biodiversity.

We know that Earth is under dramatic environmental pressure: our globe is warming, ice caps melting, glaciers are receding, coral is dying, soil is eroding, water tables are falling, fishes are depleting, and whatever remains of our forests is shrinking. And it is up to each and every one of us to change the World for the better.
With this concern in mind we the staff and students of the Department of Zoology and Genetics took up the initiative to start an Eco-Club at Jyoti Nivas College Autonomous, Bengaluru. An Eco-Club plays an important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the future generation. It is a platform through which we obtain knowledge about the environment and contribute towards improving it. Our Eco Club is a green initiative through which the Eco Crew learn to extend their boundaries and scope of formal education to take action towards improving their immediate environment. We want to show the World that WE MEAN GREEN. More Details
