BIO 232 - Case Studies in Wildlife Conservation (1)

Wildlife conservation is a multifaceted prospect, involving wildlife species and their biology, but mostly dependent on local people, governments, economics, and non-governmental organizations. This course will travel to locations where conservation activities are taking place to study the ideals and realities of conservation in the field. Experiential learning with conservation projects will be supported by readings and discussion of the focal species’ biology and conservation. The focus will be on what conservation looks like on the ground, and on what approaches seem to be succeeding or failing. Prerequisite: BIO 142   OR ENV 101   OR ENV 201   May be repeated if taken with a different professor the second time.
