Our School is different. Thereâ€™s no other way to explain it. Since our focus is the environment, you wonâ€™t spend much time in a lecture hall. Field trips, field schools and applied projects challenge you to put your new skills into practice. Most programs offer work placement opportunities, many offer paid co-ops and some offer international experiences.
Youâ€™ll get to know our faculty and other students by name - itâ€™s a close community - and youâ€™ll make friendships and connections that continue throughout your career.Find your program
Animal conservation biology has grown in recent years with the global loss of species diversity due to habitat destruction, disease, and climate change. The Conservation Biology program helps address this â€“ it is the only diploma program in Ontario that focuses solely on applied skills and research in animal biodiversity conservation.

â€śConservation Biology is a field where research and management are put into practice to save species. Our program trains students in the applied skills and critical thinking required to make real conservation decisions, and both students and faculty are dialed-in to current issues, resulting in rich dialogue and debate. At Fleming, youâ€™ll meet friends and future colleagues who share your passion to conserve the worldâ€™s biodiversity.â€ť
