This session is delivered by Dr Paul Mason as part of the University of Sydney's Postgraduate Masterclass Series.
With 70% of the world’s population set to live in urban areas by 2050, there has never been a more urgent and critical need to address the threats to biodiversity. Conservation leadership is about recognising nature as a key stakeholder in securing a shared future for wildlife and people. In this masterclass, you will be introduced to the latest research in conservation science, the skills to craft conservation communication strategies, and the best current theory and methods in behaviour change. We will examine key examples of current conservation science and education programs practiced at Taronga Conservation Society Australia. Join us and experience conservation education in action, where habitat becomes both classroom and teacher.
This masterclass delivers content from EDPT5002 Understanding Conservation Science, a core unit offered as part of the Master of Education (Taronga Conservation Education).
