Topics that will be covered in this course include:
The first introductory session will take place on the main campus at Parkville. Subsequent sessions will be held at different internal and external locations. At each session, the detailed instructions for the subsequent session will be given, together with any additional reading material. Session will run every alternate (almost) Tuesday afternoon in 1st Semester. Most sessions will start at 12.00p.m. and end between 6.00p.m. and 10.00 p.m, although one session may begin in the morning.
A number of key topics in wildlife management will be covered on each site visit. Staff from a variety of agencies that manage wildlife in Victoria will present an outline of their management programs and will provide detailed information about specific management issues and activities. Different aspects of the same topic will be covered at different sites depending upon the species of animal or management system involved. On each of these afternoons there will be practical activities designed to reinforce the theoretical aspects of the material being covered.
