Students will gain the ability to implement and evaluate wildlife management programs for captive and free-ranging wildlife. In this degree you will develop a deep scientific knowledge of wildlife anatomy and physiology, captive breeding, reproduction, nutrition, health, husbandry, ecology, welfare and behaviour.
