Wildlife Module

Wildlife module aimed at students  who will be undertaking studies  in an outdoor or ‘wild’ environment.

Students will typically be involved in studying the habitats and behaviour of animals in the natural environment.

These animals are protected by wildlife and environmental legislation and are often on public grounds such as national parks. Access can require complex permissions.

The module will address the complex legal regulations which apply.

Experts on Avian, Mammalian and Aquatic environments will share their experiences  and guide students in the areas of capture and handling  of the various species.

Veterinary experts will describe the challenging aspects of  anaesthesia, analgesia ,surgery and euthanasia in the field.
