Overview

The survival of all life on earth depends on properly functioning ecosystems. Without biodiversity, ecosystems break down. When this happens, our water systems, the air we breathe and the environments in which we grow food are all impacted. 

Conserving the environment has become a global priority, and those with specialist skills in reducing our footprint – along with identifying strategies for preserving our rich diversity – are in demand. 

As a student in the Science Innovation in Biodiversity Conservation and Management program at Macquarie University , you’ll benefit from training and immersive experiences that will teach you how to take cutting-edge insights from conception to development to realisation. 

You’ll also build skills in entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation as they apply to a range of scientific fields, supported by advanced technologies.
