Message from the Director

Welcome to the Centre for Wildlife Management. We are dedicated to building innovative capacity in individuals and the wildlife management and conservation industry through world-class teaching and research.

Renowned for their relevance, our programs stimulate students in mastering all aspects of the subject and in developing them into viable wildlife managers that meet needs and solve problems. Through a combination of direct expert teaching, practical work, and close guidance from experienced mentors, our students leave the Centre for Wildlife Management equipped with the spirit, mindset, and process skills necessary to be innovators and leaders in the wildlife industry. Complementing our educational programs are exciting research programs aimed pushing the boundaries of applied wildlife science and at developing students.

We invite you to get to know our staff and programs by browsing our website—or visiting us of the University of Pretoria’s Experimental Farm. We welcome collaborations and students from diverse wildlife related disciplines, backgrounds and countries. We seek exceptional and highly motivated students at the Hon, MSc, and PhD levels, who share our enthusiasm and interest in creating a better world for all species.
