Evidence suggests that we are currently living in the midst of a global biodiversity crisis. Species extinction is occurring at a higher rate than at any time in evolutionary history, primarily as a result of human activity. The conservation of biodiversity is therefore one of the major environmental challenges currently facing humanity. This course will give you the opportunity to understand this challenge and perhaps make a difference to our future environment.
As pressure on the natural environment intensifies, there is a growing need for skilled professionals in the areas of wildlife protection, biodiversity conservation and ecosystem management.
Wildlife conservation offers a rewarding and exciting career in protecting global bio-diversity. This degree provides people interested in environmental or conservation biology with both an understanding of ecological processes and an appreciation of the wider social and legal context in which conservation operates in practice.
