This species-specific course focusing on Badgers 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 badgers relevant to their assessment and triage for treatment, rehabilitation and release
- The care of badgers whilst in captivity
- Some of the common reasons for admissions of badgers to vets and wildlife centres
- The care of neonatal and juvenile badgers
The course will be led by Pauline Kidner (SWWR Founder) and Dr Liz Mullineaux MRCVS (SWWR Scientific Advisor and vet), both of whom have many years of experience in dealing with badgers.
The courses will be run virtually (online using Zoom) as a half day (4hr) event. Delegates may attend ‘live’ or will be able to ‘catch up’ using a time limited link over the week following the live event.
Those attending will receive an electronic certificate, as well as a selection of relevant open access scientific papers and other supporting electronic information.
Course tutor(s): Pauline Kidner and Liz Mullineaux
Date: Sunday 18th September 2022
Cost: £45 (SWWR volunteers and students £35)
Please note that although this will be a detailed course, no specific drug doses or treatments will be included, as the course is not aimed specifically at veterinary professionals. Veterinary surgeons requiring discussion of these things are directed to our course for Veterinary professionals
