    HISTORY OF THE PROGRAMME
    The Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management of the Cross River University of Technology was established in September, 2002 by the Cross River Government under the Tertiary Institutions Merger Project known as CRUTECH.

    The Department started as an outshoot of what used to be known as School of Forestry Technology in the Ibrahim Babangida College of Agriculture, Obubra. The School of Forestry Technology had been a separate Department of the College of Agriculture which came into being in 1973. Over the years, the School of Forestry Technology supported the National Diploma, Field Overseer, and Forest Guard, Programmes to cater for middle and lower levels of technical work force of Forestry services. As the School progressed, there was need to provide higher level of technical, work force in Forestry, hence by 1992, the School introduced the Higher National Diploma Programme.

    With the Merger project of the State Government, in 2002, the Ibrahim Babangida College of Agriculture became the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry of the University.

    Similarly, the School of Forestry Technology was changed to a Department with the scope of teaching and research extending to wildlife resources management; hence, the name Forestry and Wildlife Management.

    The main aim of the department is to provide professional level personnel qualified in Forestry and Wildlife resources Management. The department started with existing staff of the School of Forestry Technology who held qualifications in Forestry and Wildlife and allied disciplines. A philosophy of integrated approach to the management of Forest and Wildlife resources of the state and the country at large came to be adopted for the Department.
