Discovering Wildlife Tracks and Signs 2 Days
Sat, October 14 @ 10:00 am - Sun, October 15 @ 5:00 pm
This beginner course is a great place to start for those looking to improve their ability to identify a range of wildlife tracks and signs encountered in rural and urban areas and even gardens. Learn this valuable skill for anyone with an interest in natural history and conservation.
Wildlife tracking is an ancient science and art – one that humans once relied upon for survival. Learning to read the clues that animals leave behind helps us to understand more about the animals around us and even find the animal itself.
This course will cover:
Introduction to mammal and bird foot morphology and how that relates to the tracks we find in the field and helps us identify the trackmaker.
The value of learning to read animal tracks and signs.
How to recognise some of the more frequently encountered animal tracks and signs.
The tools and methods of analysis that will enable you to continue learning about animal tracks and signs.
