Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release Practical Course

April 28 @ 10:00 am 4:30 pm

We are pleased to announce that our practical course day for all those who have completed (or booked) ALL FOUR of our Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release courses online is now open.

The course will run for a day between 10am and 4.30pm on Sunday 28th April 2024.

There will be a maximum of 40 delegates on the day and these will be divided into four groups. The four groups will rotate around four sessions (plus a break for lunch) over the day. The sessions will cover practical elements that link to the theory learnt in all four online courses. Groups are likely to be further subdivided for some sessions.

The four sessions will include:

Course 1- a tour of SWWR site, new treatment centre and outside rehabilitation enclosures

Course 2- handling equipment, PPE, diets and housing

Course 3- examination, injection techniques, wing bandaging (note this session involves the use of dead wild animals)

Course 4- soft release set ups and post release monitoring techniques

The course will take place at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset. And promises a full day of practical sessions that compliment the learning you have already done on our wildlife courses. This practical course is also a great opportunity to meet fellow rehabilitators and share knowledge, we may even continue the conversations and networking down the local pub after the event.

All those completing the practical day (and have completed all four online courses) will receive a printed certificate and a SWWR Certificate badge.

Cost: £60 per day (£50 discounts)
