Zoology and Wildlife Conservation
The Graduate Field of Zoology & Wildlife Conservation (ZWC) integrates two broad fields of biology: animal biology and conservation biology. Opportunities exist for study and research in comparative and functional anatomy, developmental biology, and comparative and experimental embryology. The survival of threatened and endangered species requires innovative and integrative ideas and approaches to wildlife conservation, and our faculty are those innovators – conservation studies focus on individual animals, species, and ecosystems. As a member of the Biomedical and Biological Sciences Graduate Program (BBS), ZWC is part of a vibrant graduate community in the Veterinary College.
Field of Zoology & Wildlife Conservation students also have an opportunity for collaboration with Conservation Biology Institute of the Smithsonian Institute (SCBI) through the Joint Graduate Training Program (JGTP) between Cornell University and SCBI. Please see JGTP document for more information.
