Froglife Ecological Services offers comprehensive ecological training on amphibians and reptiles, including species identification and ecology, relevant legislation and surveying and monitoring.
We can also develop bespoke ecological training packages and deliver courses to clients throughout the environmental sector, from fellow ecologists to professionals from a range of other disciplines. Some courses offer the opportunity for competent trainees to obtain one reference towards their application for a Great Crested Newt survey licence.
Below are comments by just some of our course participants:
“Really in-depth. Good amount of classroom/outside. Night torching – putting learnt information to the test”.
“Both practical and in-depth classroom session. This went into detail beyond other training i.e. ecology and diseases which was interesting and useful”.
“Excellent. Getting out in the field, visiting ponds and identifying different types of newts. It was very useful to see the newts in their natural environment”.
“Very clear, methodical delivery, good amount of time to ask questions; excellent location. Setting traps and lamping – enjoyed the scenery”.
“Excellent course content. The fieldwork was very useful to give torching id experience in clear water.”
“The pre-fieldwork lecture gave a good description of surveying and id for all species. Covered all grounds and essential parts. Covered best practice when working”.
