Our Certificate programs provide students with a thorough understanding of the ecology, conservation, and management of wildlife, Sea Turtle Conservation , forest, community, and ecosystem levels and at local, landscape, regional, and global scales.

The department’s research program includes a mix of basic and applied efforts and spans a spectrum of disciplines from the human dimensions of conservation science to the fundamental understanding of wildlife – Human Conflicts Mitigation, Tiger Conservation & Leopard Conservation .

The context in which we operate centers in Mumbai but also encompasses ecosystems around the India. New knowledge produced in the department is communicated through a variety of mechanisms to the scientific community, natural resource managers, other stakeholders, and the general public to advance our understanding of wildlife and their habitats and to facilitate development of more informed natural resource policy grounded on a sound scientific basis.

A primary mechanism for transmitting our research findings and knowledge of the ecology and conservation of wildlife and their habitats to the public is our outreach and extension program.  All our faculty and many of our students and staff are involved in outreach activities.  A key element of our outreach program is work done by faculty members.

The Department administers the Program for Studies in Wildlife Conservation, Sea Turtle Conservation  which develops human resources and strengthens institutions in countries through interdisciplinary research and training. The institution also supports the Rehab & Rescue Centre for Exotics Wildlife.

In addition, our departmental programs are complemented by and often As a center for research, education, and outreach, the Department of Wildlife Conservation & Management is among the best wildlife departments in the world.
