The preservation of wildlife in the face of accelerating change to the natural world represents one of the greatest challenges to modern conservation. This course has been designed to train you to meet this challenge. You'll develop and apply your existing knowledge of biology to current issues of wildlife management and conservation.
You'll learn through a practical approach and gain wildlife management skills including advanced investigation and population analysis, wildlife capture, protected area management and wildlife veterinary skills.
You'll benefit from the knowledge gained by excellent research projects undertaken all over the world. From as near to home as Scotland, to the Large Carnivore Initiative for Europe, and work with a university and game department in Swaziland, and national parks wildlife translocation services in South Africa.
You will also get the opportunity to conduct your own independent research project for publication, possibly in Europe or South Africa, giving you unique field experience not available on any other course in the UK.
