The native fauna of Malaysia, well known for its uniqueness and diversity, is an important component of the nation’s natural heritage. Knowledge of their composition, distribution and population dynamics as well as in-depth understanding of their habitats and ecology are important prerequisites to develop sustainable management and effective conservation strategies.
Animal Resource Science and Management programme focuses on various important fields of research and knowledge application within zoological studies such as biodiversity and ecology, as well as in the aspect of animal biology, systematics, evolution and nutrition. Students will be trained in the field (to conduct samplings and data collection) and laboratory (via sample processing and analysis) involving various animal classes. In addition, environmental and management related courses are also included in the study plan to enhance future graduates with capability to propose conservation strategies in relation to animal protection and effective biodiversity’s management plan.
Graduates from this programme will have the opportunity to work in government agencies (e.g: Sarawak Forest Department, PERHILITAN, Sabah Parks, Ministry of Education), non-governmental organisations (Sarawak Forestry Corporation, Wildlife Conservation Society, World Wide Fund for Nature Malaysia, Malaysian Nature Society), and private sectors (zoo, eco-tourism, agricultural related companies, etc.).
