About Online Wildlife Forensic Sciences and Conservation

Wildlife crime is a billion-dollar threat that spans across countries and continents. Between poaching, illegal trade and regulation issues, there are many immediate concerns facing some of the world’s most endangered species. Educated, knowledgeable professionals working in the field and in the lab are critical resources in the protection and conservation of the U.S. and international wildlife populations. The University of Florida’s online graduate program in Wildlife Forensic Sciences and Conservation, offered through the Wildlife Ecology and Conservation department and the Maples Center for Forensic Medicine, aims to help bridge the knowledge gap in wildlife forensic science. Being an adequately trained professional working in wildlife conservation, ecology, and animal protection will help combat the growing problems in wildlife crime. Through this program, students will learn how critical the conservation of the world’s wildlife is to our ecosystem and natural environment.
