Wildlife Science at UQ Gatton focuses on whole animal biology and the management of wild animals, including their ecology and conservation. As a wildlife scientist you will study native and exotic amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals in their natural or man-made environments, their biodiversity, and the emerging issues associated with human-wildlife interactions. 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. With excellent wildlife trapping, identification and animal handling skills, you will be able to make a major contribution to the wildlife, game and vertebrate pest management industries in Australia.
