Biodiversity is the diversity of all life on earth, and is currently being lost at an increasing rate.  Biodiversity provides us with food, clothing, fuels, construction materials, medicines and a wide range of ecosystem services. We ourselves are part of the biodiversity of this planet: we must understand and conserve biodiversity to secure a sustainable future for humanity.

This course will provide in-depth training and experience for those looking to further their career in various aspects of biodiversity and its conservation, for students wishing to pursue further post-graduate research in this area, and for professionals already working in conservation biology wishing to obtain relevant qualifications.
