Programme summary

Want to help protect the planet? Find out about ecosystems, conservation issues, and the sustainable management of land, animals and plant life, as well as the management strategies that promote the conservation of biodiversity.

Explore how ecosystems function and support biological diversity, and how managers of biodiversity are responding to increasing concern over the effect of human activities on the world. Find out how society views and influences the natural environment, and discover how social, cultural and policy frameworks influence management decisions. Develop an appreciation of the influence government agencies, non-statutory organisations and voluntary bodies have on biodiversity.


  • Developed in response to increasing global concerns over the human impact on our natural environment.
  • Emphasis on practical application: possible work experience in applied settings, such as MPI, DOC, the Auckland Council or volunteer organisations.
  • A chance to complete a research report in an area of your own interest in order to develop the skills you'll need for a career in your chosen field.
  • A teaching team of highly qualified and respected scientists and industry consultants.
