About

We’re in the middle of a biodiversity crisis; the sixth mass extinction event on Earth driven by man. Wildlife populations have declined by 68% since 1970 while climate breakdown is pushing the Earth beyond safe ecological limits. The Ecological Management and Conservation Biology programme is offered at the Queen's University Belfast.

Overview

There is unprecedented pressure on the environment from overexploitation, habitat degradation and destruction, climate change, invasive species, pollution and emerging diseases. However, you can be part of global and local solutions. The Ecological Management and Conservation Biology programme is offered at the Queen's University Belfast .

Career Development

Many graduates enter the conservation sector internationally working across the global at the local level to affect positive change. But you don’t have to necessarily work in a conservation-orientated career - previous students have gone to places as unusual as art galleries where they have created scientifically inspired artwork as an alternative method for environmental outreach.
