Self Paced Study

Our Wildlife Conservation course will provide you with the foundation knowledge for conserving threatened wildlife. This course covers important aspects related to wildlife conservation such as:

  • habitat use, habitat fragmentation and bio geography
  • genetic diversity and conserving small populations
  • wildlife survey techniques
  • flora survey techniques
  • surveying marine life and
  • working with legislation and much more.

The valuable skills obtained through the study of this wildlife conservation course could be built upon with further study. Careerline’s courses in conservation and environmental management, wildlife management, animal behavior and landscape restoration would work well together.

Job opportunities in wildlife will be highly varied in the future so current students need to “think outside the box”. This course may deliver different things to different graduates. The following are just some of the areas where wildlife conservation opportunities may exist:

WHERE CAN THIS COURSE LEAD?

  • Research and Development – in self-employment; sub contracting services, or working for an organisation.
  • Wildlife Assessments – can be as varied such as conducting fauna surveys or animal behavioural assessments in the field.
  • Wildlife Feeding and Nutrition
  • Environmental Consultation
  • Sales and Marketing – animal services and products
  • Education – public education
  • Tourism – ecotourism
  • Business Management & Development – requires both management skills as well as a solid understanding of the wildlife industry.
  • Journalism and Writing
  • Wildlife conservation jobs may be found in organisations including state and federal wildlife organisations, non-government conservation organisations, academia, consulting companies, professional and scientific societies, zoos and aquariums.

With the strong foundation gained through this course, you will have a great standing for any successful career in wildlife.

Course Aims

  • Develop a concept of the guiding principles of wildlife conservation and the threats to wildlife.
  • Determine the principles and approaches used towards species recovery.
  • Discuss the principles of habitat conservation with regards to fragmentation, restoration and the use of protected areas.
  • Describe and discuss the various approaches used to conserve threatened species and ecosystems.
  • Appreciate the range of flora survey techniques that have been developed to sample fauna for the purposes of conservation.
  • Discuss and differentiate between fauna survey techniques that have been developed to sample fauna for the purposes of conservation.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the consequences of overexploitation. Discuss and differentiate between marine survey techniques used to conserve marine species.
  • Discuss and differentiate the range of planning tools available for farming, urban and residential planning to help conserve wildlife.
  • Identify various management techniques used to conserve wildlife.
  • Develop a wildlife recovery plan for a species under threat.
