Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
As a result of the Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit will develop student knowledge of the principles and practices in conservation biology, ecological models, and adaptive management. Integration with a field-based, real-world conservation case study will provide a direct link between students, the complexities of conservation problems, conservation approaches, and possible future careers. Case studies from Australia and internationally will be introduced, as appropriate.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an advanced understanding of biological conservation;
2. Demonstrate ability to incorporate ecological theory in applied conservation;
3. Conduct a detailed appraisal and analysis of real-world problems of conservation relevance;
4. Demonstrate well-developed scientific thinking and be able to communicate those clearly through both written and verbal skills; and
5. Work effectively as part of a team in the field.
