The course explores the principles of wildlife ecology as well as the ecological crises facing some parts of Africa. Learn about ecosystems, food chains, biomes and habitats.
Due to the complexities of interactions between components of an ecosystem and food web, interference at any level (e.g. from pollution, extinction of a species, overpopulation of a species, loss of vegetation) can have devastating effects on the ecosystem and all the organisms within it.
The African Wildlife Ecology Course is of relevance to anyone working or volunteering in wildlife ecology in Africa.
