Zoology with Conservation

Increasing interest in environmental conservation by governments and the public alike means that we now require a new generation of trained professional scientists with a sound zoological knowledge and an appreciation of the issues involved in local and global conservation.

This course provides traditional zoology (taxonomy, morphology, physiology and cell biology) with an emphasis upon animal ecology (biodiversity, ecology, behaviour and evolution. In addition you will take courses providing an appreciation of the need for environmental conservation and the means by which conservation objectives can be achieved. To this end the course establishes links between the academic learning environment and external environmental and conservation organisations in the form of project work and practical management plans.

You will acquire a broad theoretical understanding of zoology and conservation plus the acquisition of associated practical skills. Along with a comprehensive range of transferable skills, this degree will equip you with skills for employment in a conservation career.

You will benefit from the proximity of an exceptional range of terrestrial, marine and freshwater habitats where field work, which is an integral part of the degree is conducted. Bangor is also home to the divisional offices of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH), Natural Resources Wales (NRW), as well as the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), all of which have close links to the University and staff associated with this course. Biological Sciences is also part of the Environment Centre for Wales which is a partnership venture between Bangor University and the Natural Environment Research Council’s Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH).
