In the Wildlife Ecology and Management subject, students are given a thorough grounding in the ecological principles relating to wildlife and how these underpin wildlife management strategies. A strong emphasis is placed on factors such as nutrition, competition and predation in a management context. The population dynamics of wildlife, sustainable harvesting and survey techniques are discussed in detail. The application of adaptive management principles to wildlife management is emphasised throughout. Students will acquire the necessary theoretical, conceptual and practical skills to manage wildlife populations in Australia.
