This species-specific course focusing on Foxes 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 foxes relevant to their assessment and triage for treatment, rehabilitation and release
- The care of foxes whilst in captivity
- Some of the common reasons for admissions of foxes to vets and wildlife centres
- The care of neonatal and juvenile foxes
The course will be led by Dan Bryant (SWWR Section leader) and Matt Lavy (SWWR Animal Carer), both of whom have many years of experience in dealing with foxes. Veterinary Advisor Dr Liz Mullineaux will contribute information diseases and other clinical conditions.
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.
