Conserving biodiversity and avoiding the mass extinction of species are huge global challenges.
Understanding global biodiversity, and the effects of habitat loss and climate change, is crucial in helping us find new and better ways to conserve wildlife both in the UK and around the world.
The skills, scientific knowledge and research experience you'll gain will put you in an unrivalled position for securing work in this field.
Careers / Further study
By the end of the Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science programme taught at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) , you'll be well set up for working with national and international conservation organisations, or ecological consultants such as Wildlife Trusts, The Woodland Trust and other non-government organisations (NGOs).
Practical experience in plant and animal survey work, competency at mapping (GIS) and knowledge of monitoring protected species such as great crested newts, reptiles, bats, badgers or water voles are especially valuable in finding rewarding jobs.
