Wildlife Course for Veterinary Professionals

This wildlife course is designed for veterinary surgeons, registered veterinary nurses, veterinary students and student veterinary nurses and looks at the ethical problems relating to wildlife casualties and the possible consequences of their release, as well as triage, first aid and primary care of common conditions in British species.

The course is led by Liz Mullineaux, Scientific Advisor to SWWR and an RCVS Recognised Specialist in Wildlife Medicine (Mammalian), who has over 20 years of experience in this area.

An important and popular part of this course is making use of our available wildlife cadavars to have hands on experience of examining these animals and practicing first aid and other techniques. At the moment due to COVID-19 restrictions this part of the course is not possible and after due consideration we have decided not to run the course again in 2020. Provided the COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted the next veterinary course will be at SWWR on:

            Sunday 11th April 2021

This is a full day course, so please bring your own packed lunch; there are facilities for heating food. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the day.

There will also be a special offer on BSAVA Manual of Wildlife Casualties for those registering for this course. A discount code will be provided to claim a £10 discount off the print or digital versions.

The course ticket prices are as follows:
Vet CPD: Wildlife Rehab and Release: £150.00

Payment is non-refundable, alternative dates can be offered

Wildlife Course 4

Adult Learning during COVID-19

Secret World Wildlife Rescue is a respected source of expertise and centre of excellence where British wildlife can receive the best care. We are happy to share this knowledge with anyone who wishes to learn more about wildlife and caring for wild animals. We also offer professional courses for veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses.

Our Wildlife Courses are suitable for anyone, of any standard or experience, who has an interest in wildlife. Those attending all four courses receive the SWWR Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release and a badge. 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.

Our courses are normally run on site as four one-day courses and include a practical component. At the moment due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to run our courses in the normal manner and instead will deliver them virtually in late 2020 and early 2021 as four half-day events. It will be possible to view these either live or recorded by registered delegates. We hope those attending the courses online will also be able to attend a practical session to support their learning once restrictions are lifted – we will send out an invite to these and there will be a charge 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. 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 due to be published in the spring (one voucher redeemable per book purchased).
