With increasing population growth worldwide and an increasingly large proportion of the earth’s population living in urban areas, wildlife is impacted. This subject, Urban Wildlife Management, investigates the reasons for why there are conflicts between biodiversity conservation and urban development. Drawing on the understanding of land use and environmental policy, students will gain an understanding of management of wildlife within urban areas. Through the investigation into case studies students will gain knowledge to underpin decision making in a range of environmental and planning disciplines.
