Looking for ecology jobs and want to make a good impression? Heading back to a seasonal job and want to take on more surveys and greater responsibility? Make use of the early training dates and get your extra skills in place before survey season starts.
Here are our courses in March:
The course will cover bat legislation, use of trees by bats, survey methodologies, how to recognise trees used by, or potentially used by bats, and mitigation that can be used when bats are found to be present.
We will cover assessing trees from the ground and when aerial tree climbing is appropriate.
Bats use echolocation to get around. Each species makes a slightly different call. Analysing bat calls, by looking at sonograms is a typical element of any ecologist’s work. This course gives you an introduction to one of the software packages used for this – Analook. You will need to bring a computer for the workshop element. You could follow it up with Bat Survey Data: Analysis and Presentation to learn how to present your findings in a report (5th March in Exeter).

The course will cover urban and rural badger ecology and field signs, as well as looking at techniques used for surveying badgers.
During the course we will take a visit to an extensive badger sett where you can practice identifying field signs and mapping a sett.
