One of the great challenges of conservation is the wise adaptation of techniques and approaches developed in one part of the world to another.
Lincoln University has joined with the University of Göttingen, Germany, to offer this jointly awarded Masters Degree. This initiative came from the Centre for Nature Conservation (University of Göttingen) and the Isaac Centre for Nature Conservation (Lincoln University).
The University of Göttingen and Lincoln University both have strong ecological research programmes and share a common interest in nature conservation. At Lincoln University nature conservation is focused on the natural landscape, endangered species and the impact of human colonisation. The University of Göttingen has expertise with conservation in the cultural landscape, tropical ecology and forestry.
The Master of International Nature Conservation exposes students to conservation problems and solutions in two very different countries in different hemispheres with contrasting cultures.
