Course Description

Wildlife damage inspection is a complex area. The information that follows is designed to focus ONLY on the fundamentals. This is not a book about running your business. It is a technical guide to educate readers about the process and interpretation of signs left by vertebrate animals in human-impacted environments. More information could have been added but would have cluttered the text with minutia only useful in extremely marginal situations.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Become confident in the identification of various vertebrate species based on habitat, routes of entry, scat, and track information.
  • Understand and evaluate the physical, biological and legal risks involved in the inspection process.
