Course DescriptionThis unit examines management strategies that can be adopted to protect endangered and vulnerable animals and control feral animals and pests. Students examine the commercial exploitation of native animal populations and broad-scale management actions that may affect many animal species, such as fire and predator control. There is an emphasis on management of small and fragmented populations as this is a major issue for many species in Australia. Students are involved in lectures, workshops and case studies with government and community conservation agencies. They are also involved in one of the research projects and this requires them to spend a minimum of two days in the field. Scientific and technical skills—students gain experience in assessing and synthesising scientific literature by writing assignments on specific topics and on practical work. This includes assessment of experimental approaches to management. Assessment of reports contains written commentary on students' performance and advice on how to improve.
