If you’re an animal lover and enjoy being outdoors, our Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Course will help you get closer to nature while helping our furry, scaled, and feathered friends. Wildlife rehabilitation involves working with wild animals to ensure they are healthy, safe, and not at risk from environmental factors. 

You may have stumbled upon an injured or orphaned animal in your backyard or on a nature hike, or you may live in an area that frequently sees forest fires, oil spills, storms, or deforestation. In all these cases, knowledge of wildlife rehabilitation or wild animal rescue can be crucial to saving an animal’s life. You don’t need any prior veterinary knowledge, as this course will start with the basics and cover a lot of groundwork. You’ll learn about responsible wildlife interaction, animal anatomy, and physiology, how to treat injuries in birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, how to assist in environmental disasters, and how to safely handle, transport and release wildlife.

Whether you just love animals and want to be more involved, or you are looking to volunteer or work in a park, nature reserve, or zoo, we’ll equip you with the knowledge and training to prepare you for wildlife rehabilitation.

    Prérequis

    Holly and Hugo courses are designed for anyone with an interest in learning. No formal qualifications are required. Our courses are suitable if you want to learn new skills, start a new career, or if you’re already working in a particular industry and wish to upgrade your talents and enhance your resume.
