Description:Wildlife biology is about the biology, ecology, and behaviour of vertebrate animals, especially mammals, birds and fishes. This specialization focuses on the management and conservation of wildlife species and their habitats, recognizing that wildlife species are important in ecosystems and are important to society.

Many of the courses in the specialization are ‘hands on’, and will take students into a field setting to study wildlife in their natural environments. The specialization focuses on the most recent techniques and findings in wildlife research, and how they have and can be applied to real world problems in conserving wildlife and minimizing human-wildlife conflicts.
