Airport Wildlife Manager
Airport wildlife biologists aim to reduce the attractiveness of airports to local wildlife to help ensure passenger safety. Birds and large mammals collide with in-flight aircraft, and smaller mammals, such as mice, climb into planes and chew wires, which can cause serious problems with aircraft systems.
Northern Roots Urban Farm includes a large biodiversity project. Conservation and ecology specialists are improving wildlife habitats such as introducing hedges and ornamental gardens, restructuring plantation woodlands, and expanding the woodland and wetland areas to support the diverse range of wildlife in the area.
Fresh Water Conservationist
Although the River Irwell runs through urban areas, it provides a safe haven for ducks over winter and is an important habitat for many insects, fish, birds and mammals. In recent years conservation groups have cleaned up the river and improved the water quality, allowing more wildlife to return.
Human activities have a devastating impact on our oceans, marine life and habitats. Marine biologists work to preserve ocean environments and ecosystems, implement conservation strategies, study marine life and its interaction with the environment, and measure human impact on the oceans.
Zoos recruit talented zoologists and conservationists to manage many of its wildlife conservation programmes and research projects. They often specialise in preventing species extinction through conservation and breeding management programmes, and leads many research projects relating to the health and wellbeing of all the wildlife of the zoo.
