Gainesville, Florida - United States

The Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida! The mission of the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation is to foster education, expand knowledge, and reward scholarship, using multi-disciplinary approaches, for the purpose of understanding, managing, and conserving biological resources. The primary goal of our teaching, research, and extension programs is to develop and communicate the knowledge necessary for enhancing the conservation and management of wildlife and their habitats for the greatest aesthetic, ecological, economic, and recreational values.

Our undergraduate and graduate degree programs provide students with a thorough understanding of the ecology, conservation, and management of wildlife at organismal, population, community, and ecosystem levels and at local, landscape, regional, and global scales. At the undergraduate level, we offer a Bachelor's of Science degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. Undergraduates choose among four specializations designed to tailor an educational program to meet individual career directions and interests. At the graduate level, we offer training for a Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and at the Master's level offer both thesis and non-thesis degree options. As a center for research, education, and outreach, the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation is among the best wildlife departments in the world.
