Frequently Asked Questions

The environment acts as a giant instruction manual for wild animals, dictating their behaviour to ensure survival. From the ever-present threat of predators to the availability of food and mates, factors like habitat, climate, and even human presence all influence how animals act, from their hunting strategies to their migration patterns.
Studying wild animal behaviour is crucial for conservation efforts. It allows us to understand animal needs, detect threats like illness or habitat loss through behaviour changes, and even predict animal movements. This knowledge helps us develop better conservation strategies to protect species and maintain healthy ecosystems.
Understanding wild animal behaviour opens doors to various jobs. From wildlife rehabilitator or research assistant roles where you'd directly observe and care for animals, to park ranger or conservation technician positions where knowledge of animal behaviour helps manage habitats and track populations. Even research in fields like ecology or evolutionary biology benefits from this skillset.
Landing a job with wild animals often involves building a strong foundation. Consider volunteering or interning at wildlife rehab centres or conservation organisations. This builds experience and allows you to network. A knowledge-based wild animal behaviour course like this one will also equip you with the foundation to understand these fascinating creatures. It will give you a head start by teaching you how environmental cues and social interactions influence animal actions. This knowledge is valuable for entry-level wildlife rehabilitation, research assistant, or park ranger positions, and paves the way for future careers in conservation and wildlife management. Earning a degree in biology, ecology, or a related field strengthens your knowledge, and unlocks higher-level career opportunities.
Yes, you can! This wild animal behaviour course can be studied completely online at home, so you can easily log on and learn around your commitments.
