Wildlife Schools

Wildlife Schools are practical training courses for ecologists and environmental practitioners.  Our courses offer participants the opportunity to be trained in the survey, identification and management of the fauna and flora of eastern Australia.

Wildlife Schools offer ecologists a rare opportunity to gain training with an emphasis on practical field work

Emphasis is placed on time in the field to allow participants to gain practical experience in survey procedures and to view habitats from the perspective of the wildlife that lives in it.  There is also a concentration on species listed under both the TSC and EPBC Acts, providing up to date information on their specific requirements and current best management practices.

Wildlife Schools are convened by Dr Frank Lemckert, an internationally recognised herpetologist and forest fauna expert.  Frank will be joined by other highly skilled and experienced ecologists to deliver a uniquely practical and empowering training experience.
