This course will enable you to interpret the signs that nature has left behind. You will be able to identify the spoor of mammals, reptiles, arthropods and amphibians, as well as their behavioural signs! Learn the ‘tricks of the trade’ in order to follow and find animals. Expect to look at the bush with brand new eyes and open up a whole new world of nature…through tracking!
Who is this course suited to?
