About

The Applied Wildlife Conservation programme at Anglia Ruskin University will develop the practical skills you need for a career in wildlife conservation. The course was developed in partnership with environmental organisations to ensure you’re skilled and employable in this rewarding area.

Overview

Key facts

Our planet is in urgent need of capable and well-trained wildlife conservationists to find solutions to the problems of biodiversity loss. If you’re passionate about wildlife and planning a career in conservation, the Applied Wildlife Conservation programme at Anglia Ruskin University will equip you with the skills you need. You’ll focus on the sustainable management of wildlife and habitats, with an emphasis on developing practical skills and the ability to analyse and interpret data in the interests of conservation. Our course has been developed with international conservation organisations, so you can be sure you’ll be gaining skills and knowledge valued by employers in the field.

Field trips give you the chance to apply your skills whilst working on conservation projects in the UK and abroad. You can choose to go on an exciting residential field trip (usually in Borneo, but this may vary) to explore the issues central to wildlife conservation in situ. There you’ll have the opportunity to visit a research station and apply your skills in a tropical forest conservation project. Every year we also welcome a wide range of guest lecturers who share their inspiring and innovative experiences of working in wildlife conservation.

Careers

Careers areas include conservation biology, environmental consultancy and conservation education. You may find work in a non-governmental organisation (NGO), charity, zoo, private company, a government body or in a related field such as ecotourism.
