Course details

Throughout the country some of our most important wildlife habitats are protected as nature reserves. Here nature conservation organisations manage the land for the benefit of wildlife.

However, the practicalities of managing the land are challenging and it is often difficult to decide what species or habitats are the priority for protection or enhancement and how to go about it.

This course concentrates on birds but we will be looking at a variety of other groups such as plants, larger invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and habitats as a whole.

The course aims to build up the confidence of students to have a better understanding of the practical decisions nature conservationists face.

The course will be field based with indoor sessions used to consolidate and reinforce field techniques.

The course will visit a variety of reserves including RSPB Ynys-hir, Ynys-las National Nature Reserve and the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust reserve at Glasllyn.

The field work will concentrate on becoming familiar with identifying a range of key birds, plants and animals.

The course can be taken as an optional module towards the Certificate of Higher Education in Field Ecology or as a stand-alone course and is accredited at 10 credits, CQFW level 4.
