WLD1010: What is Wildlife?

Students demonstrate knowledge of wildlife and ecosystems, and examine the need to manage and conserve wildlife.

This module introduces a lot of the elements covered in more detail in later modules. It forms a solid foundation for further study in this strand.

In accordance with WLD1010 guidelines this module has been divided into 3 sections: Awareness, Ecosystems and Wildlife Conservation and Preservation. These sections have then been sub-divided into short units. Unit assignments require the free program Adobe Reader to view and print.

These modules fit together as outlined in the Scope & Sequence chart.
