WOW Short course 2013. New for this year is the WOW Whales and Dolphins for Beginners. The old favourites include:
WOW Cetaceans and WOW Seals. WOW Seabird Monitoring and WOW Seabirds for Beginners are also running again.
All carry UK nationally recognised qualifications. For all WOW short courses and more detail see http://coast.pembrokeshire.ac.uk/wow/
The general structure of a 3 day WOW course is to provide an introduction to identification, biology , sampling theory and field recording. The Cetacean course includes the option of boat survey. Seabirds courses will hopefully include a Skomer Island visit. The Seabird Monitoring course will be led by former RSPB Ramsey Island Warden, Ian Bullock. Courses are based on the Pembrokeshire coast, West Wales, UK, with approximately half the course spent in the class room and half in the field. Courses cost range from £100-150 per person. Pembrokeshire College and SeaTrust have been running WOW (Wildlife Observer Wales) short courses since 2007
These are not MMO courses, but do compliment a typical MMO course, by placing much greater emphasis on species identification and recording. Courses include the option of boat work and island visits at an additional cost.
Funding may be available for persons employed in an associated field and based in the Wales area. More details on request.
