Conservation and Wildlife Management

Do you want to help protect the UK’s natural environment?

If you’re keen to work outdoors and to learn how to protect the British countryside, Reaseheath is the perfect place for you to study!

The British countryside and the wildlife it supports is increasingly under threat and our climate is changing. For people who are passionate about our great outdoors, there are careers in conservation which could enable you to make a positive impact on our environment.

Our Conservation and Wildlife Management course has been designed to equip you with the scientific knowledge and practical skills to start your journey towards a challenging and rewarding career in conservation. You will develop your understanding of a broad range of subjects through practical sessions and classroom activities, together with inspiring field trips and industry placements with partners such as the National Trust, the Forestry Commission and the Wildlife Trusts.

Your future…

Many of our students choose to further their studies at University whilst others go straight into the industry and the excitement of a career in conservation. From becoming a ranger or an environmental ecologist to a forest schools practitioner, your options are as diverse as the British countryside you will be working in!

Our conservation and wildlife management students tell us they most enjoy:

  • Being taught by our inspirational staff who have all worked in the industry
  • Tackling field work projects including canoeing along the River Weaver surveying for water voles

  • Studying amongst of 330 hectares of farms, parklands, lake and woodland meaning, you’re never far from the environment we love!
