A Natural History of Kent’s Mammals
About the event
The morning session will cover the small mammals and will consist of a powerpoint presentation and include a behind-the-scenes visit to our small mammal captive breeding areas.
The afternoon will cover the larger mammals and again consists of a powerpoint presentation and includes a tour of the mammal enclosures at Wildwood with more in-depth discussion about each species.
The afternoon will also include a ‘hands-on’ examination of artefacts such as skulls, antlers and skins.
The focus of the course will be on their ecology, reproduction biology and conservation issues. Their habitats and distribution in Kent will also be covered. Mammal identification is covered in a separate course.
