Predator control is an important part of wildlife management in the British countryside. This one-day course covers fox snaring in the morning and corvid control in the afternoon. Attendees will learn how to get the most from these techniques improving humanness, efficiency and success rates.

The GWCT has carried out over 200 man years of research into how to make snaring more effective, target specific and humane. Fox snaring is one of many techniques available and it is certainly one of the most effective when used correctly.

Snaring subjects covered:

  • Legislation and codes of practice relevant to England and Wales
  • How to choose your equipment
  • Snare preparation
  • Selecting snare locations and how to avoid non-target species
  • Humane dispatch and the release of non-target animals

Corvid trapping:

  • Legislation and general licence conditions
  • Choosing equipment and traps
  • Where and when to target corvids
  • Avoiding non-target species
  • Managing the public perception and interference when trapping

This course is run in the classroom for the theory and then the chance to position snares and choose snaring sites will be taught outdoors. Corvid trapping will also be taught in the classroom and then there will be the chance to view and evaluate traps outdoors. Teaching will be followed by a short exam at the end and all those who pass will receive a certificate.
