Become an ecological change maker Solutions to the global biodiversity crisis require an appreciation of the ecological, social, economic, political, and ethical aspects of environmental challenges that influence the way in which we go about conserving the natural world. Taught by experts in the area of global conservation science and management, this course will provide you with strong interdisciplinary expertise in managing biodiversity and natural resources with a focus on social, economic, and policy aspects. Taking a global perspective, you will be trained in both the ecological and decision science aspects of biodiversity conservation and in the broader ethical and social issues that are part and parcel of conservation action on the ground. You will become skilled in areas such as geographic information systems (GIS), decision science, and conservation project planning. You’ll also gain first-hand practical conservation experience from one of the world’s leading conservation organisations - The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. Through an understanding of the way that conservation projects are designed, managed, evaluated, and communicated, you will learn how to deliver effective conservation solutions in any situation. You’ll be highly employable in both the public and third sectors nationally and internationally, where a multidisciplinary understanding of real-world problems is needed to arrive at effective solutions. This could lead to a career in organisations such as Wildlife Trusts and International NGOs including the Worldwide Fund for Nature and the Nature Conservancy.
