An introductory two day course for beginning wildlife or novice rehabilitators seeking formal education with a half day hands-on lab! This class is meant to be a flipped classroom experience. We challenge you to do your homework and readings before you get to your class. This will facilitate a richer learning experience in the classroom.

FYI South Africa Classes: You will register through this web site but pay in Rand to your course host. Once you have registered we will send you an email with details on payment. The cost of your books will be included when you pay for registration. Once you have paid we will send you an email with your course details, homework, slide presentation, etc.  If you choose a softcover book it will be printed in South Africa and you will receive it at the course.

FYI Canada Classes: Please note we are currently researching how to improve the cost of international shipping. In addition to the rate charged by USPS we have had complaints that Canadian customs is charging extra fees on random packages. Per the postal service there is nothing we can do to predict or eliminate these charges.
