Course summary

Biodiversity is essential to life on earth, yet, ecological threats are at a record high. With recognition that our planet can no longer support society’s unsustainable ways, find out how you can be part of the solution in protecting precious ecosystems with our wildlife conservation postgraduate degree.

Developed to nurture the next generation of conservation leaders, the course aims to support a move towards a sustainable future for humans and wildlife, in line with the UN Convention on Biological Diversity 2011-2020 Vision: 'Living in Harmony with Nature'.

Led by a highly qualified, research-active staff programme team, you will develop cutting-edge skills and practical knowledge using tools that can help to to tackle complex issues surrounding our biodiversity crisis.

You will:

  • Explore current methods and techniques used to measure and evaluate biodiversity in the field
  • Understand the role that invasive species and pathogens play in altering local ecological communities and biodiversity
  • Develop and apply essential tools used to produce and interpret maps for conservation planning and monitoring


There is global recognition that we need more conservation biologists to solve and mitigate the problems caused by human activities that are detrimental to the survival of wildlife such as the unsustainable forest use.

Wildlife conservation biologists work throughout the world in roles with a wide-range of institutions from NGOs, Federal Agencies to universities. Course graduates can also expect to find opportunities with state institutions, private companies, environmental consultancies and research institutions including universities.
