The department is at the forefront of increasing understanding and knowledge of the ecology, conservation, management and sustainable utilization of wildlife populations and their habitats through undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education, research, and extension. Our programs seek to address the challenges of habitat condition deterioration, encroachment, fragmentation, destruction and modification that have seen most wildlife species and populations declining, and their natural distribution range diminishing. Our undergraduate and graduate degree programs seek to capacitate and produce specialized, skilled professionals in wildlife ecology, conservation and management of wildlife as well as ecological restoration programs towards conservation, sustainable use and improved human-wellbeing. Currently, at undergraduate level we offer, a four years Bachelor of Science Honors Degree in Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation. The program offers a unique opportunity for individuals to apply both the primary and secondary objectives of conservation in a manner that fosters sustainability and stewardship of the wildlife heritage. We offer taught Masters-Masters in Biodiversity Conservation which is an 18 months program, Masters by Research and PhD degrees in various fields of wildlife ecology and conservation.
