The Bachelor of Wildlife and Conservation Biology from La Trobe University draws on many areas of science including botany, genetics and zoology. You'll learn to apply ecological concepts to the conservation of species and ecosystems and explore the legal framework for conservation.
Your curriculum will cover biology fundamentals – including how organisms, the environment and human populations interact with each other – as well as climate change and sustainability. As you progress in your studies, you'll advance your understanding of conservation issues, learn to use different technologies to collect and process data, and design your own detailed conservation management plan. You'll be taught by La Trobe experts involved in conservation projects, and who work with partners in state and federal government departments and non-government organisations such as Bush Heritage and Trust for Nature.
You'll graduate ready for employment in diverse roles across environmental sciences. Possible roles include:
- Conservation scientist
- Park ranger
- Environmental consultant
- Wildlife research biologist
- Wildlife officer
