On our Animal Biology and Conservation degree you will study conservation ecology, evolution and developmental biology. And try to answer questions such as:
- How do we best conserve rare and endangered animal species?
- What adaptations help animals cope with life in changing environments?
- How can conservation respond to climate change?
Laboratory and field work are a core part of the degree. And you can put your skills into practice through field work in France and Devon.
You will develop excellent skills including:
- research practice
- data collection and analysis
- research presentation skills
- animal identification and survey techniques required by conservation practitioners.
We have great links with regional environmental organisations and local employers. We help to provide exciting work placements and career opportunities for our students. Our students have gone on to work with:
- conservation trusts
- government agencies
- wildlife centres
