ZOOLOGICAL MUSEUM

The muse­um was found­ed by AA Silantev and A. N. Kholod­kovsky  approx­i­mate­ly in 1895–1898, when expo­si­tions were cre­at­ed and stuffed birds and ani­mals were acquired for the first time. The col­lec­tion occu­pies 160 square meters. The muse­um is con­ceived as an edu­ca­tion­al expo­si­tion of for­est ani­mals and birds, their bio­log­i­cal fea­tures, as well as an exhi­bi­tion of hunt­ing equip­ment. The basis of the Muse­um is a sys­tem­at­ic col­lec­tion, rep­re­sent­ed by the most impor­tant class­es and fam­i­lies of for­est birds and mammals.

The expo­si­tion of mam­mals includes rep­re­sen­ta­tives of orders of preda­to­ry, rodents, lag­i­formes, insec­ti­vores, artio­dactyls, bats and oth­er animals.

The most com­plete is the class of birds: in the col­lec­tion there are species of passer­ines, chick­ens, day-old birds of prey, owls, Charadri­iformes, anseriformes.

In the muse­um there are more than 1000 stuffed birds and ani­mals, horns of 50 species of ungu­late mam­mals, a col­lec­tion of fin­ger­prints of 60 species of birds and ani­mals, a col­lec­tion of eggs of more than 70 bird species, 30 tools for obtain­ing ani­mals, 50 bird nests, about 50 items of hunt­ing gear, birch bark, two pairs of freight sledges, a phonoteque of birds’ voices.

FEU teach­ers active­ly use the col­lec­tions of the Muse­um for con­duct­ing study ses­sions with uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents, stu­dents of oth­er forestry and bio­log­i­cal uni­ver­si­ties, it is vis­it­ed by domes­tic and for­eign sci­en­tists, del­e­ga­tions study­ing the set­ting of the edu­ca­tion­al process at the uni­ver­si­ty, the guests of the uni­ver­si­ty. The Muse­um orga­nizes excur­sions for school­child­ren as part of career guid­ance pro­grams. In the years 2004–2005, the muse­um was thor­ough­ly ren­o­vat­ed. His col­lec­tions are con­stant­ly replenished.
