Wildlife ACT, an award-winning African Wildlife Conservation organisation in South Africa, have launched online conservation courses through the Wildlife ACT Training Academy on Teachable Inc.
In this course, Wildlife ACT takes the many years of experience from its oldest and its best trackers, and combines it into an introductory 4 week course taught by an experienced field and experiential instructor.
Tracking is a crucial skill within conservation management. Perhaps you are a curious tracker or want to learn more about African wildlife, their tracks, scats & signs. This course will be your guide into building your awareness of the ground, aerial and vocal clues that surround us. Learn how you, a more knowledgeable tracker, can better contribute to the conservation of our protected areas.
The course begins once you sign up!
Duration: 4 Weeks
Cost: €60 for the full, 4 week course
Live Q+A’s: Wednesdays at 17h00 (GMT+0). All live sessions are recorded and made available to students who cannot make them.
Eligibility: To anyone interested in the science and art of wildlife tracking. The course will conclude with a final online quiz, with certificates of completion provided.
About Wildlife ACT
Wildlife ACT funds much of their conservation work through ecotourism, which allows critical endangered and priority species monitoring work to take place across 5 protected areas in Zululand, South Africa. Due to the current national lockdown and travel restrictions, they have lost this funding. So by simply taking the course, please know that you are helping to support the work that we do to protect wildlife.
