Session will run every alternate (almost) Tuesday afternoon in 1st Semester. Most sessions will start at 12.00 pm and end between 6.00 pm and 10.00 pm.
A number of key topics in wildlife management will be covered on each site visit with a short discussion of key themes for each visit conducted at the start of the trip. Students will be asked to complete theme-specific task sheets during each visit in groups. 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.
