Masters degrees in Conservation Ecology administer specialist training in the conservation and restoration of species and communities, including an examination of their natural habitats. Specialisations include Primate Ecology, Bird Conservation, Invertebrate Ecology, Agro-ecology, and Urban Ecology.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, though sufficient work experience may be accepted.
Courses in this field are highly varied. Topics range from population ecology and human community development, through to international wildlife trade and the economics of conservation.
Programmes are a combination of academic study and practical training. This may include: fieldwork exploring ecological survey methods such as taxonomy and GIS (geographic information systems); lab work including analysis of tissue culture, bioimaging and 3D modelling; data analysis and report writing.
Careers may include executive roles within charitable organisations, government agencies or NGOs, developing policy on global issues such as indigenous communities or endangered species. You may opt to work on a smaller scale within specified conservation projects, managing wildlife and forestry, or zoo keeping.
