Courses with The Mammal Society
For the third year running in 2016, NatureSpy is again running two day-long courses with The Mammal Society on 'Using Camera Trapping'.
The first course will be at Cheshire Wildlife Trust's Bickley Hall Farm on the 9th April, and the second at the Moors National Park Centre near Danby in the North York Moors on the 6th October.
The day is a perfect overview of what camera trapping can do, and lets participants gets hands-on with camera traps themselves.
The course covers where camera trapping came from, how it is used in conservation and science, some major camera trap discoveries, how the camera traps themselves work, a look at camera trap videos and images, how to set-up a camera trap, 'Dos and dont's', how to place a camera trap, and how to download/check images.
Each delegate is able to get hands-on with different models of camera traps, with an outdoor practical session for testing set-ups, various settings and placements
Upon course completion, participants get a Mammal Society certificate.
All bookings need to go through the Mammal Society's website and there is a concessional rate if you are a member of the Society or a student.
We look forward to seeing you there!
