Course Details

Make a real impact

Conservationists observe, preserve and discover life. Whether swimming with colourful marine creatures or reforesting for native birds, they pursue their passions and connect with nature. Unfortunately, many species are vanishing—and more will disappear during our lifetime.

What will you do?

Our Bachelor of Marine and Wildlife Conservation gives you the knowledge and skills to safeguard ecosystems and protect animals in crisis. You will:

build foundational knowledge of ecology, biology, evolutionary science, statistics, botany and zoology

learn to identify plants, animals, and marine life in natural settings

use new technology, like drones and satellites, to collect data and monitor habitats

build valuable industry connections with organisations—from Arid Recovery and BioR in South Australia to Conservation International

reflect on the social, political and economic constraints of your field

access cutting-edge technology and facilities

learn from nationally and internationally acclaimed researchers.

Where could it take you?

You might run breeding programs in sanctuaries, research the impact of microplastics in fish, or deep dive on underwater volcanoes. You could explore future life in a high-CO2 world. Perhaps you’ll lead moonlit ecotours in the outback or make documentaries to educate the wider public.
