Program Description

Recent developments in conservation biology have emphasised the need for conservation scientists to utilise knowledge and practical skills from animal behaviour research to enable us to develop effective solutions to the loss of biodiversity. If you are passionate about animals and their conservation, our exciting Masters course will provide you the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for a career in animal conservation. Through consultation with international conservation organisations our Masters course has been designed to equip graduates with practical and analytical skills that can be applied to solve real world conservation problems.
