The University of Sydney and Taronga Conservation Society Australia have joined forces to offer a new education degree: the Masters of Education (Taronga Conservation Education).
The Zoo will also offer a new Bachelor of Science in conservation with the University of Sydney.
The degrees, which will be undertaken at the University’s main Camperdown campus, will include contact hours at Taronga Institute of Science and Learning
A purpose built research and education centre on site at Taronga Zoo Sydney, opened in October by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Masters program is designed to equip primary and secondary school teachers with the skills they need to design environmental education programs relevant to real world professional contexts.
The course is aimed at practising teachers with an interest in conservation and sustainability, and professionals already working in wildlife and habitat conservation and the growing sustainability sector.
