The Environmental Conservation programme is offered at the Bangor University. As environmental concerns become ever more pressing, there is an increasing need to understand how we can effectively conserve species, habitats and ecology.


This Environmental Conservation course course gives a theoretical grounding in how populations and communities work and a practical understanding of the issues surrounding environmental conservation. 

We teach the skills needed by conservation professionals for monitoring habitats and species and we demonstrate the importance of social and economic factors in achieving successful conservation.

Why choose Bangor University for this course?

  • Bangor’s location, between the Menai Straits and Snowdonia  National Park, offers unrivalled opportunities for learning about ecology, conservation and the natural environment outside the class room.
  • Successful conservation relies on an interdisciplinary approach. Our supportive, friendly and accessible staff have a range of expertise covering conservation, ecology, environmental science, forestry, and the social sciences. The Centre for Evidence Based Conservation, a world-recognised centre for translating conservation science into policy, is based at Bangor, giving students a unique insight into the policy process.
  • We have close links with many of the local conservation organisations including Snowdonia National Park Authority, Natural Resources Wales and the British Trust for Ornithology which help students gain understanding of conservation practice.
  • We also have excellent links with conservation organisations throughout the world. Staff and students are currently working in Madagascar, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ghana, Kenya and Bangladesh for example.
