Conserving biodiversity and avoiding the mass extinction of species are huge global challenges. Designed for students with a science and/or geography background and with specific interests in research into species and habitat conservation, the MSci Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science at UWE Bristol will equip you with the scientific knowledge and research skills to understand the nature of global biodiversity, the effects of habitat loss and climate change, and current and novel scientific approaches to conserving wildlife. MSci Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science has been created in collaboration with Bristol Zoo Gardens, with unique access to the zoo's facilities and expertise. The MSci Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science at UWE Bristol explores wildlife conservation issues at local, national and global levels. Mixing theory with extensive practice and opportunities for original research, you will gain a deep understanding of the relationship between wildlife and society, the impact of human activities on the living world, and an appreciation of the practical steps that can be taken to alleviate biodiversity decline, preparing you for a career in ecological research or conservation.
