when the Agricultural-Forestry Shoo] was founded in Križevci. With the elevatiom
of forestry teaching to the academic level, wildlife management was included in
the curriculum of the Academy. Following the First World War, the Academy
was transformed into the Forestry Faculty o!f the University of Zagreb. Today,
wildlife studies take place at the Veterinary Faculty (Zagreb), the Faculties of
Agricultural Sciences (Zagreb and Osijek) as well as the Forestry Faculty. With
the opening of middle schools of forestry after the Second World War, wildlife
management was taught as a school subject. Today, specialized technicians in
wildlife management and workers skilled in game breeding are trained. With the
foundation of the Institute and Department for Wildlife Preservation and Hunting
in the Forestry Faculty, University of Zagreb, wildlife preservation and
hunting gained its place as a scientific discipline.
