The aim of this course is to examine how conservation theory is used in practice to conserve species, ecosystems and habitats, and to inform policy-makers. This is an interactive course that encourages debate and discussion. The course tries to bridge the gap between the theory you will have learnt in second year Conservation Biology and the applied conservation issues of today. You will be able to meet a range of academics, policy advisers and practitioners from various organisations through a field visit and guest speakers, and we hope this will enhance your awareness and enjoyment of the subject.
The trip, lectures and discussions will hopefully give you new insights into the professional environmental sector which may influence your career decisions. You will produce a conservation evidence report and a research proposal, which will provide you with the opportunity to develop transferable skills in synthesising information, critical evaluation and research project design.
