Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science

BSc(Hons) Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science explores wildlife conservation issues at local, national and global levels. Created in partnership with Bristol Zoo Gardens, it gives you unique access to the zoo's facilities and expertise. Mixing theory with practice, you’ll delve into the relationship between wildlife and society, and consider the impact of human activities on the living world. Deepen your knowledge of conservation by carrying out work in natural habitats close to Bristol, including the Severn Estuary, the Cotswolds woodlands and grasslands, the Somerset Levels and Avon Gorge. Tap into our many links with local conservation organisations, and go on placements, volunteering, field-based work and residential trips in the UK and overseas. Choose our sandwich course option to spend your third year on a work placement in this country, Europe or further afield, applying your knowledge to topical conservation issues. Explore the steps that can be taken to alleviate biodiversity decline, and get the strong foundation you need for a career in conservation. You’ll be well prepared to go into a wide range of jobs. You could work in national and international wildlife conservation, conservation consultancy, media and wildlife film-making, wildlife and enterprise, or wildlife conservation research. As a science graduate, your skills will be highly valued, and you could also go into a range of non-science graduate positions.
