Why choose this course?
The School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences has invested heavily in facilities and research programmes that support wildlife conservation sciences. Our modern Animal Unit and varying habitats on campus support a strong community of undergraduate and postgraduate students on Animal Sciences, Zoo Biology and Wildlife Conservation courses.
Brackenhurst campus is part of the DEFRA Environmental Stewardship scheme that supports effective environmental management of farm land and countryside estates. Over the years a number of endangered species have been involved in recovery programmes at Brackenhurst including Yellowhammers and Great Crested Newts.
What you'll study
Supported by legislation in many countries, endangered species recovery represents the recognised scientific approach to the conservation of threatened species by way of a recovery plan. This course aims to develop detailed knowledge and experience of recovery planning, and the skills and knowledge associated with in-situ and ex-situ species recovery.
The combination of theory and practical sessions will enable you to develop a holistic approach to endangered species recovery and conservation. Part of your study will take place at the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (DWCT) International Training Centre.
