This course will give educators, communicators and advocates the skills to communicate conservation issues and science to audiences of all kinds.

Current issues in conservation both local and international will be examined, and evidence-based methods for raising awareness and human behaviour change discussed. The latest research from the fields of conservation, education and psychology is examined to provide an effective and cross-disciplinary approach to raising engagement with conservation issues and solutions.

The programme is designed to meet the diverse needs of the animal industry and thus combines theoretical knowledge with practical application. This programme aims to provide:

  • A systematic and evidence-based approach to conservation education

  • Knowledge of a range of conservation issues, both local and international

  • Practical skills for communication with stakeholders

  • Frameworks and skills for behaviour change for conservation
