Otago University is one of New Zealand’s leading research-oriented universities and provides an excellent base for Wildlife Management studies, being within easy reach of largely untouched mountains, fiords, rainforests and wetlands, as well as landscapes modified by agriculture. There is a number of rare or threatened species within a few kilometres of the campus, including albatross, yellow-eyed penguins, native passerines, skinks and geckos. The University has a concentration of ecologists active in research on wildlife species and endangered habitats. University staff maintain strong links with conservation and research agencies, both within New Zealand and internationally. You will be given the opportunity to study the processes and interactions at work in ecological communities, and to develop your understanding of the principles of wildlife population persistence, change, or decline.
