This 3 credit hour course is aimed at individuals passionate about wildlife who wish to become a part of conservation in action. Wildlife management has become an accepted and necessary part of wildlife conservation. Successful management includes monitoring and moving animals to reestablish the checks and balances of nature in managed systems. This type of work requires specialized training and experience which the students will receive through this wildlife capture course.

Please note…I am currently working on approval of the graduate level option.  Because graduate credit hours are slightly more expensive, the graduate level course will be about $175 more than that indicated in the brochure.
