About

The Animal Behaviour Applications for Conservation course at Anglia Ruskin University will help you gain an understanding of the application of animal behaviour to conservation, and develop the practical skills you need for a career in animal conservation. You'll train in the technologies and scientific methods used in animal behaviour research.

Overview

Key facts

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.

The Animal Behaviour Applications for Conservation course at Anglia Ruskin University begins with intensive technical training in animal behaviour. This is coupled with a Behavioural Ecology and Conservation module, in which you will learn how to select and apply animal behaviour techniques to best effect in many different settings.
