Applied Conservation

Auckland University of Technology

Field of Study:Natural Resources/Conservation, General


Applied conservation graduates will understand ecosystems but at the same time have the skills required to engage with communities and stakeholders in planning, managing and implementing conservation projects. Graduates who understand the vital links between ecology and human geography are particularly likely to be effective conservation advocates and managers.

The combination of conservation biology and socio-ecological science is also much more useful to employers, who are aiming for more creative thinking and flexibility than is provided by narrowly focused courses in conservation biology. We have designed this major by working closely with the Department of Conservation (DOC) so that it meets the defined needs in the conservation industry.
