Among the many environmental issues, the most serious is the increasingly rapid loss of biodiversity.
This loss is irreversible on a human timescale and will reduce the options available to all future human generations. This course also provides insights to the many benefits and services that nature offers and explores strategies for management options to sustain ecological integrity and production. It is an inexact, applied, mission-orientated, multidisciplinary science which, like medicine, has built-in values: to a conservation biologist, as to a doctor, it matters whether the patient lives or dies.
It is also a very new science, bringing together elements from ecology, environmental science, forestry, resource management and many other fields. The course is designed to provide the knowledge, theories, and research related to biodiversity conservation. Our teaching focuses on biodiversity conservation, conservation issues associated with climate change, the key theoretical underpinning of biodiversity conservation and an introduction to conservation legislation and economics.
We emphasis on the integration of knowledge, skills and abilities that are required to practice conservation. On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: CLO 1.

Show strong analytical and critical abilities and logical thinking, with evidence of original thought, ability to integrate and synthesize information, and ability to apply knowledge to a wide range of complex, familiar and unfamiliar situations.
