Wildlife Training Courses

Following on from the successful ecological training courses of the last few years, WTSWW has a new programme arranged for 2013, bringing back some of previous years courses but also adding in some that are brand new for 2013. These courses are taught by experts at the top of their field, and are suitable both for those working in the field of conservation and for general wildlife enthusiasts, enabling participants to increase their knowledge and experience in the field.

The courses will be held in the newly refurbished Parc Slip Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre, on the beautiful Parc Slip Nature Reserve, Bridgend. Amongst the new courses are Conservation Law, Introduction to Grasses and Dormouse Ecology and Conservation. Additionally, a special two-day course will be held this year on Amphibian and Reptile Ecology and Survey Skills, which will cover a number of survey methodologies, including bottle trapping for European protected great crested newt.

A small amount is charged for each course, which will go back into the Wildlife Trust Student and Volunteer Fund. Places are limited on these courses, so please book now to avoid disappointment.
A full list of the courses is available. If you have any further questions, or wish to book, please contact Marie Lindley on 01656 724100 or email info@welshwildlife.org
