Wildlife Tracking for Conservation

Natural History Live by Dan Puplett

Wildlife tracking is one of the oldest human skills and is still relevant today. We will explore how reading tracks and signs help us to understand the natural world in much greater depth. Tracking is also a valuable conservation tool and we will look at how many of us, whether amateur naturalists, citizen scientists or professional ecologists, can benefit from honing our tracking skills.

FSC Natural History Live webinars are free online learning experiences for adults, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event. Sign up for the FSC Biodiversity newsletter to find out about our other online learning opportunities and receive exclusive discounts.
