Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course deals with theoretical (overall philosophy, IUCN, CITES) and practical aspects of nature conservation and species protection, with the emphasis in the marine realm being on whales and dolphins, sea turtles and coral reefs, in the terrestrial realm on parrots, orangutans, black-footed ferrets, Przerwalski horses (thaki), etc

Assessment and permitted materials

A written exam is held at the end of the semester (2nd opportunity early in the following summer semester) consisting of multiple-choice and true/false questions as well as several written questions (short answers sufficient and preferred)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This course is designed to give students an introduction into the issues of nature conservation and species protection. An important aspect is to distinguish between what is on paper and what the situation is on site. Students get an insight into what they can expect when they volunteer for nature conservation work or focus their studies on nature conservation.

Examination topics

The lectures are based on powerpoint presentations. The coral and sea turtle lectures of the marine part utilize a large number of color images based on 20 years of experience and photodocumentation in the field.
