Employees in zoos and wildlife conservation organisations are now required to have a deep understanding of the needs of animals in terms of behaviour, ecology, welfare, housing, nutrition and health. This programme offers an opportunity to science graduates and experienced zoo staff to develop the specific scientific understanding and technical skills required to build careers in zoos and wildlife conservation.
