About the award
Co-supervisor: Dr Sarah Perkins, University of Cardiff
Co-supervisor: Dr Roo Campbell, Scottish Natural Heritage
This is an exciting, applied research project in which students will acquire a breadth of skills in conservation science. The student will join thriving teams of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers working on wildlife ecology, conservation and management at Exeter and Cardiff Universities. In addition they will benefit from a parallel project working on cats, cat owners and predation of wildlife. This is a CASE project with our partners at Scottish Natural Heritage meaning the student will gain valuable practical experience of conservation in action and the policy and practice environments in a statutory nature conservation agency and a large multi-agency conservation programme.
