Animal Behaviour: Applications for Conservation Part-Time Anglia Ruskin University

Our course focuses on the practical skills required to work in conservation, introducing a range of old and new field and laboratory methods: satellite tracking, stable isotope analysis, DNA-based technology, sound recording and playback, use of camera traps and photography, bird ringing, and wildlife forensics. There is also the opportunity to learn GIS, and to apply GIS mapping and analysis as part of your MSc research. Developing communication skills is another focus, and students have the opportunity to take ecotourism modules from our Lord Ashcroft Business School.

Wildlife conservation is the protection and management of wildlife and habitats in the interest of their survival into the future. The protection of wildlife has become a priority worldwide as the result of growing threats from habitat loss and deterioration, introduction of alien species, over-exploitation and poaching, pollution, and the changing climate.

New technology and on-line resources has revolutionised the field of conservation. The study of animal behaviour for conservation involves both the traditional skills of a field biologist and new skills ranging from satellite tracking to the use of DNA -based technologies.
