This course’s central focus is an examination of conservation issues facing various species and an assessment of possible solutions. The course will look at both successful and unsuccessful conservation strategies in local, regional and global contexts and will appraise current initiatives to predict the success or failure of these projects. Dynamics to be considered include habitat loss due to human encroachment, biodiversity, contamination and the impact of climate change. Students will choose a predicament presently facing an animal species and draw up their own conservation strategy to confront the problem.
