The original habitat of many species, terrestrial and aquatic, is being destroyed at an accelerating rate. This is usually associated with an alteration to the remaining habitat, which becomes degraded, fragmented or in other ways disturbed by human activities.
During the last 15 years, an increasing number of studies have focussed on the way that different species respond to human-induced change of their habitats. These responses are varied and range from population decline to adaptation and development of new behavioural strategies.
We also welcome post-doctoral research associates and professional researchers (link to postdoc/prof researchers page) that wish to undertake in situ or ex situ conservation-focused research projects here at the Zoo or abroad.
