About this event

This course, led by Merryl Gelling, is aimed at professionals, and assumes some prior experience of water vole ecology. The course will cover field-signs of water voles and other easily-confused species, legislation, different types of mitigation and when each is suitable by working through a series of case studies and discussing potential solutions to each. All discussions will reference scientific research and how it feeds into mitigation practice today.

Finally, we will discuss the implications of live-capture, transportation and maintaining water voles in captivity as well as considerations for effective re-establishment of water voles, including habitat requirements, mink control and welfare considerations of water voles.

The course will be run by Dr Merryl Gelling – Merryl is the Director of Spires Ecology and sits on the Mammal Society Council. She has studied and worked with water voles for over twenty years, recently completed research into the efficacy of displacement on water voles.

A CPD certificate will be sent after the course.

This course will be held on Zoom with up to 15 participants.

Trainer: Dr Merryl Gelling
