 This Endangered Species Recovery and Conservation course from Nottingham Trent University aims to develop detailed knowledge and experience of recovery planning, and the skills and knowledge associated with in-situ and ex-situ species recovery.


You will have access to our purpose-built Animal Unit which is home to over 150 animals, from 40 different species. You'll have the opportunity to work with the domestic and exotic species found here, as well as out in the natural habitats on the estate, and further afield on international research projects. You'll also have access to specialised teaching and laboratory facilities.

The academic team who facilitate this course work on endangered species recovery initiatives in several countries, and have established recovery research links in Canada and America, where species recovery is a recognised process supported by government legislation. 

The team also have links to species recovery programmes in Mauritius, Sweden and South Africa. These links provide opportunities and scope for a wide range of research projects in the field.
