Small mammals are one of our most abundant groups of mammals but can be challenging to identify and many are rarely seen and under recorded despite being numerous and often important indicators of ecosystem health. This one day workshop will introduce participants to the ecology of common species in the area and the key identifying features. We will also cover the general ecology of small mammals along with survey techniques using Longworth traps. There will potentially be the opportunity to handle small mammals as part of the survey.
The course will consist of classroom components and activities in the field but cannot guarantee that any small mammals will be trapped.
