Event description
A look at the who, what, when, how, and why of tracking and trailing our Cornish mammals.

About this Event

This talk will focus on the tracks and signs left by wildlife and how to systematically identify the mammal responsible. Starting with an introduction to the key differences between the various species' tracks and signs, and insights into common mistakes that trackers make.We'll look at examples of tracks, nests, scat, and feeding signs, followed by an introduction to trailing to help participants become more confident and broaden their knowledge. We'll also discuss the different ways that you can take your tracking knowledge further, whether as a hobbyist on your daily walks, an amateur who would like to gain more skills or working towards an internationally recognised qualification. We will consider ways to get involved with, and support the ongoing monitoring of Cornish mammals.

Angie Nash is the Director of Panash Adventures, previously lectured in Ecology and Conservation and is a long-standing committee member of CMG. She has travelled the world tracking mammals for population monitoring and conservation research, including orangutans in Borneo, large mammals in Africa and polar bears in the Arctic. She has a keen interest in our home-grown Cornish mammals, and has woken up to bank voles sitting on her head on more occasions than is fashionable. She is Level 3 Certified Track and Sign on the international CyberTracker system.
