Rescue, Care and Rehabilitation of Foxes

November 16 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

This species-specific course focusing on Foxes is aimed at those who have already completed our Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release Courses and/or have some good foundation knowledge of the rehabilitation of badgers.

The course will include discussion of:

  • The ecology and biology of foxes relevant to their assessment and triage for treatment, rehabilitation and release
  • The care of foxes whilst in captivity
  • Some of the common reasons for admissions of foxes to vets and wildlife centres
  • The care of neonatal and juvenile foxes

The course will be led by Dan Bryant (SWWR Wildlife Care Supervisor) and Matt Lavy (SWWR Wildife Care Assistant), both of whom have many years of experience in dealing with foxes. SWWR Scientific Advisor Dr Liz Mullineaux will contribute information on diseases and other clinical conditions.

The courses will be run virtually (online using Zoom) as a half day (4hr) event. It is possible to attend the courses online on the day or as a recorded presentation, sent to registered delegates and accessible for a limited time after the course.

Those attending will receive an electronic certificate, as well as a selection of relevant open access scientific papers and other supporting electronic information.
