Looking for tips about masters in Wildlife forensics and possible places to get some work experience.


Thanks for recent comments, this post is quite old now my apologies for not updating this any sooner. I have since finished my Masters and am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Tasmania studying conservation genetics. I have less than a year left, so as always tips and recommendations for wildlife crime related jobs, ideally involving genetics, are much appreciated. 

Hi everyone,

I am Charlotte and I live in the Netherlands. I just finished my bachelor degree Wildlife management at University of applied sciences Van Hall Larenstein in Leeuwarden. My passion is to help wildlife now and in the future, by helping fighting wildlife crime. I am looking into doing a master in wildlife forensics to get better knowledge about this.

I am planning on starting my master next year. To overcome this year I am looking for a good place to already get some experience in this field. I was hoping that some of you might have any tips on organizations where I could get some experience in Wildlife forensics. Tips about possible master or universities are also more than welcome.

Thank you,


I have not personally done this program but I was considering it at one time. The University of Florida has a virtual wildlife forensics program that I have heard great things about!
