Lecture “Relationship between man and golden jackal”

  • 08.03.2017.


Golden Jackal (Canis aureus) is opportunistic species of Canidae family. It is very shy but highly adaptable and lives in packs. Golden Jackal is autochthon to Eastern and Central Europe, Middle East, Asia Minor and South Asia where it lives in harmony with people for thousands of years. Despite that, it is often considered pest and has been shot in big numbers.
Distribution trend of this species through Northern and Eastern Europe in last 5 years has caused interest among scientists, hunters and citizens. What caused the invasion? How to deal with it? Are we really threatened or are we just being afraid of the unknown?

Ivana Selanec, BIOM employee with experience in research of Golden Jackal in Croatia will answers to these and many other questions. The lecture will take place on Thursday, 16th of March 2017 at 6 PM in lecture room BO2, Biology Department of Faculty of Science, Rooseveltov trg 6. If you can`t come to our lecture, you can watch us on our You Tube channel.
