The Department of Environmental Biology and Wildlife Sciences (EBWS) was started in 2015 due to the efforts of Prof Dhruba J Saikia, then Vice-Chancellor of erstwhile Cotton College State University. This new and somewhat unique Department is of great value to the State, which is located in one of the rich bio-diversity hotspots of the world, especially given the multidisciplinary nature of the subject and the challenges of conservation and climate change. He envisioned that via this Department new knowledge would be generated, particularly in the boundaries of traditional disciplines and has synergy with several other Departments of the University.
