Wildlife Observer Wales courses, Autumn 2015

The WOW Seals course gives the opportunity to gain detailed experience of population monitoring and other study methods during the seal pupping season on the Pembrokeshire Coast.

The WOW Cetaceans course is our original course and provides a useful experience of whale, dolphin and porpoise identification, recording, biology and survey methods.  An ideal supplement to an MMO course.

·         WOW Seals
2 day course, £130, 19-20 September 2015

·         WOW Cetaceans
3 days, £180, 28-30 October 2015.

We will be visiting various sites on the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coast for the seal and cetacean field work, including sites that are of current interest for marine renewable energy development.  All courses are designed to give students a start along career paths such as marine wildlife monitoring and tour guiding.  However, many students simply want to enjoy our coastal wildlife in a structured, informative and fun way.

The WOW courses have been running since 2007 and are a partnership between Pembrokeshire College's Coastal and Marine Environment Research<http://coast.pembrokeshire.ac.uk/wow/> Unit and Seatrust,.<https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sea-Trust/532791560088466>

Both Pembrokeshire College's Coastal and Marine Environment Research Unit and SeaTrust are actively involved with monitoring local marine wildlife populations, including citizen science projects and renewable energy developments.

The courses aim to provide participants with nationally recognised qualifications.  We train students to identify and record local species as well as give background to biology and field study methods.  The courses use the Pembrokeshire coast and islands as well as well as classroom sessions to teach and practice these skills.  Bespoke courses can be arranged.
