The Zoological Survey of India (ZSI) was established on 1 July 1916
to promote the survey, exploration and research of the fauna in the
region. The Survey had its genesis in the establishment of the
Zoological Section of the Indian Museum at Calcutta in 1875. The
establishment was suggested in letters by Alfred William Alcock
following his resignation.The Survey conducts no formal courses,
but holds Conferences, Training Courses, Workshops and Colloquia
periodically. For the publication of the results of research
carried out in its laboratories, the Survey has its own
journals.The ZSI began on the strength of a (then) century old
zoological collection from the former museum (1814-1875) of the
Asiatic Society of Bengal, which had passed on to the Zoological
Section of the Indian Museum (1875-1916).
