2. DISCLAIMER This is to inform ALL that ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF PAKISTAN, with its Head Office in University of the Punjab, has no AFFILIATE(S) what so ever. Anyone claiming or insinuating this relationship is making FALSE statement. This explanation was necessary because a society (Applied Zoological Society of Pakistan, abbreviated as AZSP) emanating from GC University, Faisalabad has not only adopted similar type of name, but is also advertising all the activities which are hallmark of Zoological Society of Pakistan thus creating confusion among Zoologists/ Biologists/Animal Scientists, nationally and internationally.
