  • Gain knowledge on the impact of human populations, deforestation and poaching
  • Become employable in wildlife conservation
  • Take a CPD and Quality Endorsed course

About your Diploma

The African Wildlife and Conservation Studies Diploma develops your knowledge of the threats animals indigenous to the African continent face. As well as how this imbalance affects the food chain and the survival of the ecosystem.

Much of the African Wildlife falls victim to hunters and poachers for trophy killing, their supposed medicinal properties or illegal trade. As well as the degradation and loss of habitat that plays a big part in endangering animal life.

By learning about the various variables affecting African animals, you’ll better understand the action that’s needed to protect them.

Throughout the course you’ll cover poaching, illegal trade and deforestation. As well as modules covering African ecosystems and the importance of each animal. You’ll explore what different species need to thrive, how they are studied and the conservation efforts that are currently underway.

Upon completion of this course, you’ll become an effective advocate for African animal welfare. Suitable for work in zoos and safari parks or abroad as part of international agencies that safeguard their existence in the wild.

Getting Started

Stonebridge Associated Colleges is the UK’s leading online course providers. Our online courses give you the flexibility to engage with your studies whenever suits you best.

The benefit of online learning is you can plan your studies around your existing commitments. So, you’re able to progress with your learning in a way that works for you, without the stressful balancing act.

You’ll gain essential knowledge in African Wildlife, allowing you to work towards a further education or a fulfilling new career. With no classes to attend or timetable to stick to, you’re in control of the pace and place of your learning.

In addition to this, we have dedicated and experienced online tutors to support you throughout your course. As well as flexible payment options and the material being readily available as soon as you enrol.

The units are broken down for you here so that you can see what your qualification will include. However, the assignments you complete have been designed so that you can complete multiple tasks together where possible and you will see a different number of assignments in your personal portfolio; you will still be completing the whole qualification.

  • Understand the effects of increasing population growth in humans
  • Understand the meaning of the ‘ecosystem’ which includes aspects like biological and physical components, terrestrial, aquatic, and interactions and dependency

On completion of this unit you will:

  • Understand the ecological and biological aspects of the lives of African Herbivores
  • Understand the concerns regarding their management and conservation
  • Understand culling, disease, poaching, predators and hunting, habitat degradation, game farms, game capture and meat, nature reserves, exotic species, theft, and migration routes
  • Understand ecological and biological information on African herbivores such as appearance, habitat, diet, competitors, lifespan, behaviour, social grouping, reproduction, parental care, and threats

Unit 5: African Primates

On completion of this unit you will:

  • Understand the differences used to describe primates
  • Understand the biology and ecology of multiple different species, as well as their conservation threats
  • Understand ape habitat destruction, poaching and bushmeat, Zoonoses, other diseases, pollution, wildlife trading, human threats, vermin populations, and the exploiting of apes in eco-tourism

Unit 6: African Birds

On completion of this unit you will:

  • Understand a selection of birds from the continent of Africa
  • Understand their significance to African ecology and the threats they face

As this course is provided through an online distance learning platform, you will complete all work and assessments from home.
