This short course is designed for mature students (19+) who have a passion and interest for British Wildlife and Conservation who wish to learn more about this subject and why it is an important part of the animal care industry. This short course is an introduction into wildlife and conservation which will enable learners to recognise a range of habitats and energy links between plants and animals. It will involve practical elements such as animal and plant surveys along with learning the theory such as understanding the climate and how this can affect the plant and animal life. Learners will also be looking at the food chain and how plants provide energy for the animals feeding behaviours. The course will examine wildlife conservation and terms associated with this as well as investigating a range of different habitat types and their characteristics. It will explore the influences on different sites such as population, pollution which will discuss how humans can impact wildlife and conservation efforts. It will go into detail about the producers, primary consumers, secondary consumer and tertiary consumer and how the change in population effects the consumers and what this might mean. It is important to understand the process of decomposition and how this works in relation to the “natural clean up” when exploring conservation efforts. In order for the learner to successfully complete this course it will involve some independent learning to full fill the commitment of the course and it will be assessed through the completion of a portfolio of evidence and this will also include some practical aspect such as habitat surveys. On completion of this course you will have completed a level 1 in wildlife conservation which will lead will give you a basic understanding of this animal care filed of study and a stepping stone onto future courses.
