Overview

The conservation of our planet and the species that keep it in balance is the biggest problem faced by humans today. Conserving the natural world is often framed as an optional above-and-beyond when in reality it is essential for the survival of all species. The tipping point at which ecosystems will be unable to recover from human damage is creeping closer, and Ecology and Wildlife Conservation gives a practical outlook on the situation and how we could salvage it.

Ecology experts from the University of Leeds have teamed up with conservationists including Harriet Lawrence, Communications Officer at the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, and Mary Berry from Natural England, to tackle the problem from all angles. Led by Dr. Chris Hassall, Associate Professor of Biology, we journey through motivations for conserving the natural world, complex roadblocks, and potential solutions up-and-coming technology may offer. The course aims to equip learners with the knowledge to live in better harmony with nature and wildlife, for the sake of ourselves and our planet.

"As much as the natural world does for us, there is so much left unexplored, so much more possibility that if we exploit our Earth to the point of no return, we'll never discover all of the wonderful things that could still be out there."

Harriet Lawrence
