Course content

Supported by legislation in many countries, endangered species recovery represents the recognised scientific approach to the conservation of threatened species by way of a recovery plan. This course aims to develop detailed knowledge and experience of recovery
planning, and the skills and knowledge associated with in-situ and ex-situ species recovery.

The combination of theory and practical sessions will enable you to develop a holistic approach to endangered species recovery and conservation. Part of your study will take place at the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (DWCT) International Training Centre.

The two Masters-level degrees offer you the opportunity to undertake an international research project using NTU’s links with conservation projects in North America, Sweden and South Africa.
