The Wildlife Management course has been designed for students who would like to work in conservation of wildlife and their ecosystems.

When working with wildlife it may be in the following areas:

  1. Managing wildlife habitats
  2. Managing people
  3. Managing individual animals in populations to either change or cause a population to remain constant.

With the importance of maintaining wildlife populations, you will be required to carry out research into the local methods of wildlife management and work to improve maintenance programs for habitats and breeding grounds for the wildlife.

If you love working with animals and would like to work in the outdoors, you can combine the two by undertaking the Wildlife Management course today.
