Wildlife Management

Work in ecotourism

Are you interested in wild animals and their natural environment? And would you like to work as a manager in ecotourism, for example in a wildlife park? Then it is important that you have good knowledge of the protection of nature and wildlife conservation. In addition, you need to know how to achieve economic success with a wildlife and nature-friendly approach. 

You should also be able to deal with all kinds of people because you will be working closely with others in remote locations. You will gain this knowledge and these skills in the Wildlife Management minor.

  • Study in South Africa, where ecotourism is the fastest growing industry.
  • Go on excursions to, among others, the Addo Elephant Park, a centre for breeding chimpanzees, a reptile centre, and the bush.
  • Undergo survival training and learn to deal with all kinds of animals and equipment.
  • Attend workshops on plants, mammals, fish, amphibians, and reptiles.

The minor is worth 15 ECTS credits and is offered in English in South Africa. The course concludes with written examinations, practical assignments, and the writing and presentation of a management plan.
