In a world where we hear a lot in the news about the environmental devastation across the planet, from deforestation to pollution of water supplies, loss of natural habitats for plants and animals to the destruction of peatland, there is somewhere you can study the science of eco-renovation to learn how to go out there and help heal some of the damage done to the land.
The masters award, offered by Dimoria College, Assam in Asia, and affiliated with Dibrugarh University, covers topics such as wetland restoration, grassland management and wildlife ecology and management, and will arm students with the knowledge and experience of working in these fields to enable them to work in these fields following completion of the course. The college principal, R.C Bharali commented that the subject is,
“a general need of this modern world because deforestation and degradation of the ecology is a great concern of the human beings.”
The first cohort of students studying the award are currently undertaking their work placements, where they will work in the field gaining first hand experience of the effects of human activity on the eco-systems encountered. The college offers further courses with links to the environment, such as Sponsored Vocational Courses in Forestry Wildlife Management and Industrial Fisheries.
