The native fauna of Malaysia, well known for its uniqueness and diversity, is an important component of the nation's natural heritage. Knowledge of their composition, distribution and population dynamics as well as in-depth understanding of their habitats and ecology are important prerequisites for developing sustainable management and effective conservation strategies. The Department of Zoology (DZ) under  Faculty of Resource Science & Technology (FRST) at UNIMAS focuses on various important fields of research within zoology including animal systematics, ecology, conservation and management, biology, evolution, phylogeography, and bioinformatics. It currently offers one undergraduate programme, namely the Animal Resource Science and Management Programme.
