About Biodiversity and Conservation at University of Sheffield

As the pressure on natural resources and ecosystems increases, the urgent need to protect and encourage the sustainable use of these ecosystems grows. Biodiversity conservation is a global priority, with a UN Sustainable Development Goal devoted to sustainably managing forests, combating desertification and halting the loss of biodiversity. In order to influence change in this area, training future ecologists, researchers and policy makers in the skills and knowledge to be able to address these challenges needs to be a priority.

This course brings together our research expertise across ecosystems: from the tropics to the Arctic, and from forests to seas. You'll develop fundamental knowledge about today's major conservation issues and their human and environmental drivers including urbanisation, tropical logging, climate change, marine pollution and the balance between sustainable food production and biodiversity.

Throughout your training, guest speakers will help you to expand your understanding of biodiversity and conservation with real-world insights, preparing you for an exciting career protecting biodiversity around the world.
