Course summary

Loss of biodiversity is an increasing concern at national, European and global levels. To work as a professional with wildlife and in conservation you will need both practical skills and knowledge of theory to meet the challenge of saving our wildlife and wild places. This course focuses on conservation both in wildlife centres and in the wild, which is ideal if you want to pursue a career involving wildlife, working in either of those environments.
