About

The Wildlife Conservation programme offered by the University of Chester provides a unique training experience for someone seeking to develop a successful career in wildlife conservation.

Overview

The rapid decline of global biodiversity has made wildlife conservation a crisis discipline. This has led to growing local, national and international demand for specialists with academic and practical wildlife conservation skills.

Career Prospects

The Wildlife Conservation programme offered by the University of Chester aims to build on and consolidate your existing skills/knowledge, and offer exposure to advanced concepts and practical applications in wildlife conservation. This will be done through exploration of our expertise in field and lab-based research on key species and habitats, in the UK and further afield.

The staff are engaged in pioneering projects locally, nationally and globally, and have led the development of wildlife crime as an academic subject area. We are also involved in conservation of globally threatened species such as the Trinidad piping guan, Grenada dove and Philippine duck.

You will be engaged in a peer-based learning environment that includes field and lab work, which will provide insights into key research in wildlife conservation. We will also focus on the development of your professional skills and profile for your future career, and encourage links and networking opportunities with practitioners in the field.
