Course Content and Outline

In preparation for the residential field course, students will take part in sessions based on risk assessment for fieldwork, politics and diplomacy associated with collaborative conservation work, and basic field skills. The alternative locations for the field course are very different from one another and offer a range of challenges and limitations specific to each habitat, as well as the site’s political and stakeholder frameworks. Students will visit one of these sites and seek to understand the context and their complexities. On returning to the university, students will participate in an assessed group presentation and facilitated discussion session, to share the outcomes of their different experiences.
