Individuals, organisations and governments around the world are increasingly concerned about the welfare of our planet and everything on it. This includes our marine environments where many factors, including human behaviour, have left a large number of species at risk.
Our course allows you to develop a deep understanding of concerns relating to marine environments, and to look at ways of resolving those concerns.
You’ll learn about marine biodiversity locally and around the world, and explore conservation ecology, which aims to support, recover and maintain populations and their habitats.
On our field trips you might experience sea life on the Farne Islands; marine biology in Scotland; zoos in the Netherlands; wildlife and ecology in Kenya; and diving and marine biology in the Red Sea. There’s also a final-year residential at a UK marine biology station. You’ll need to pay for this, and any residential trips.
Cambridge is becoming a world centre for wildlife conservation, with Fauna and Flora International, Birdlife International and the World Conservation Monitoring Centre based here. Throughout the course, you’ll have opportunities to attend lectures in the city and visit specialist museums and libraries.
