Course outline

Care about how animals are impacted by the environment and humans, and what we can do to protect their future? Develop analytical and research skills to better understand conservation and management.

In this program you will gain hands-on experience from your first year with fieldwork to North Stradbroke Island and your local region. You’ll build your knowledge of animal conservation, biodiversity and animal behaviour, and work with leading researchers on field trips and in the laboratory. You’ll undertake a guided research project in Animal Ecology, working as an intern animal ecologist as part of your studies, or take advantage of opportunities to travel abroad.
