The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form. Read more

Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. (AERG, Anglia Ruskin University). Read more

Internet of Things Infrastructure for Sustainable Wildlife Conservation (Self-Funded Students Only)

  Research Group: Complex Systems
This project will investigate the design and development of an end-to-end, distributed, Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure to support sustainable wildlife conservation. Read more

Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans. Read more

Informing landscape-scale conservation of rare bats using novel telemetry techniques

  Research Group: EBE
Landscape-scale planning for bat conservation is challenging because detailed information on habitat use is difficult to obtain, particularly for rare bats that are infrequently recorded using acoustic techniques. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of wildlife trade on tropical biodiversity

Wildlife trade is a core driver of the global extinction crisis, with the epicentre of traded species diversity in the tropics. Key questions remain about how wildlife trade impacts species populations and, in turn, the long-term sustainability of trade. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of mining on tropical biodiversity

Mining is the most luctrative industry globally, with rapid expansion of mines predicted accross the tropics. This expansion will drive deforestation within the mine itself and through interaction with socio-economic development outside of the mine. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

Conservation of pollinator biodiversity and sustainable management of pollination services in agroecosystems

Wild and managed pollinators provide a wide range of benefits to society in terms of contributions to food security, farmer and beekeeper livelihoods, social and cultural values, as well as the maintenance of wider biodiversity and ecosystem stability. Read more
