The University of Melbourne, Australia offers a course in Conservation and Restoration.
Conservation of biodiversity, and the restoration of biological communities and landscapes, pose huge challenges for managers of our natural resources.
Meaningful progress in this area demands rigorous training in a range of disciplines, especially conservation biology, restoration ecology and landscape management, as well as in the policies and social issues that enable or constrain success.
This stream focuses on the conservation and restoration of ecosystems, with exciting subjects also available in wildlife conservation.
Students with an undergraduate degree in agriculture, botany, environmental science and engineering, forestry, genetics, natural resource management, park management, and policy economics and management.
It also suits government and industry professionals working in conservation and development who are seeking to upgrade or link their skills to environmental management.
