Having been out of education for several years, Joe was unsure about whether he could gain a degree. After completing our Access to HE course and a BSc in Wildlife Conservation and Ecology, he has achieved his goal.
Although Joe had a keen interest in birds and already worked as a head falconer before studying with us, he chose to study his degree at University Centre Reaseheath to explore the wider conservation industry.
Since graduating, Joe has gone on to study a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology at the University of Chester. This has given him the chance to conduct research in Lanzarote, alongside world leading experts, to conserve the endangered houbara bustard.
