Write a short conservation strategy brief where you identify a conservation problem for a species and develop a series of conservation actions

– these could be designing a new nature reserve, a reintroduction program etc., or a combination of them. This will include a concise introduction where you outline the problem and conservation goals with a more detailed section explaining the conservation actions required to achieve the goals. In this section you will need to demonstrate how you have applied your understanding of behavioural ecology to decide upon the actions proposed. This will require a critical evaluation of current knowledge and key concepts from behavioural ecology and conservation.
In choosing your species you might want to consider a species where there is history of unsuccessful reintroduction or nature reserves – this will give you a good opportunity to critically evaluate where behavioural ecology was not useful, or where it might have improved the success of the programme.
