Wildlife and Conservation Biology involves managing wildlife and their habitats, and people and their activities.

Wildlife courses place emphasis on biology and ecology, populations, habitat, techniques, and policy. Other required courses provide a foundation in a variety of disciplines within the natural, physical, and social sciences.

Students are encouraged to participate in faculty research projects involving a variety of wildlife species and research questions and approaches including radio-telemetry, habitat analysis, captive wildlife studies, GIS analysis, and population measurements. Wildlife faculty with expertise in habitat relationships, conservation biology, game management, and bioenergetics conduct research throughout New Hampshire and New England.
