wolves

January 9th – Rewilding: Return of the Wolf - SOLD OUT

Saturday 9th January

10am – 1pm

Tutor: Anne Riddell

This three hour online course via Zoom discusses the wolf’s current absence from Britain and the conservation interest in bringing it back. The session will look at the history of the wolf in Britain, its ecology, pack behaviour and its recolonisation of Western Europe since WW2. It asks if wolves could be successfully reintroduced to modern Britain, what measures would be required to make that feasible and how the public might view the return of this superlative predator.

phase 1 part 1

February 8th – UKHab Webinar Training Course

Monday 8th February

10am – 3.30pm

Tutor: Lesley Mason PhD ACIEEM – Freelance Botanist & Ecologist – UKHab Accredited Trainer

The UK Habitat Classification (UKHab) is a new comprehensive classification system for vegetation habitats which has many uses in conservation and land management. UKHab is set to replace the Phase 1 Habitat Survey currently used by ecological consultants in Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (PEA) of development sites.

UKHab will also be used as part of the Biodiversity Net Gain metric calculation for new developments.

This one day course comprises 3 Zoom webinar sessions covering:

Introduction and overview of the UKHab
UKHab survey: How to code and map habitats
Using the UKHab Field Key to habitats (includes practical tasks)
Sessions will be 60 to 90mins each to allow time for participant interaction, questions and breaks. Limited to a maximum of 15 participants. Participants will be contacted via email to arrange webinar sessions.

NB. Participants may wish to download the UKHab documents in advance of the course from the website here: https://ukhab.org/

We will be practicing using the Field Key in session 3, so a printout of the key will be very useful.
