Therefore, there is a need to ensure that nature tourism follows the principles of sustainability, by minimising impacts on natural environments, contributing to protected area management and also benefiting local people. This programme addresses the issues implicit in the tourism industry, and the biodiversity conservation concerns arising from it. This requires a broad interdisciplinary approach which we are ideally situated to provide. All students undertake a relevant research project, over five months. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own ideas for the research project, or alternatively, participate in an international conservation project run by DICE or one of its partners.
