East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service is running a brand new training course designed for members of the public to learn more about the main species of wildlife on their local ponds as well as the problems they encounter and what members of the public can do to help.

The course looks at the main species found at ponds and waterways plus their nesting habits plus diet etc. It also looks at the main problems they face and the types of incidents which WRAS is called out to on a regular basis and how members of the public can help. The course also looks at a few myths and mistakes which are commonly made.

The course is will be run my Trevor Weeks Rescue Co-ordinator for East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS), who has been involved in undertaking wildlife rescue and conservation work for over 23 years now.

As we are getting more and more busy we are trying to encourage members of the public to learn more about their local wildlife and how they can help" said Trevor, "we are in the process of working on other such courses and hope to be able to run more courses in the future."

The 2 hour course costs £7.50 booking in advance or £10 on the door per person. There will be refreshments and everyone will go away with a certificate of attendance too.
