Wildlife Course 1
January 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm£25.00 – £35.00
Our Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release courses are suitable for anyone (over the age of 18), of any standard or experience, who has an interest in wildlife. If you know somebody under the age of 18 that would like to attend then this may be possible if they are accompanied by a paying adult, please email Learning@secretworld.org for more information.
These four courses are run virtually (online using Zoom) as half day (4hr) events. It is possible to attend the courses ‘live’ or as a recorded presentation, sent to registered delegates and accessible for a limited time after the course. In order to ensure the best experience for all delegates we ask that everyone attends Course 1 before booking on to courses 2, 3 or 4.
Those attending the courses online will also be able to attend a practical session to support their learning, this will be advertised on our website and is usually run in April at a cost of £60 (or concessionary rates) for the whole day. Those attending all four online courses and the practical day will receive the SWWR Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release and a badge. Those attending just the online courses will receive an electronic certificate for each course.
As an extra incentive, those attending any of the online courses will also receive a voucher for £10 off the SWWR ‘Introduction to wildlife rescue and rehabilitation’ book – published January 2022 (one voucher redeemable per book purchased).
