Wildlife Biology and Conservation

The greatest challenge facing conservation biologists today is the preservation of the world's biodiversity in the face of considerable human demands on space and resources. By combining the disciplines of wildlife biology and conservation biology, experienced staff will help you develop and apply both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to address this challenge. Our graduates have gone on to work for government agencies and independent wildlife organisations nationally and internationally. This is a distance learning course, offering you the flexibility to learn at your own pace and place, possibly alongside work in the conservation industry.
