Tutor: Steve Kirk

A course designed for environmental professionals such as ecological consultants, reserve wardens and other land managers to raise awareness of this important and frequently overlooked small mammal, in this the 250th anniversary year since its discovery. The morning will be spent with a classroom-based presentation on the most up-to-date understanding of harvest mouse ecology, and will also cover different survey techniques to search for the presence of this Species of Principal Importance. There will be an opportunity to view live harvest mice in Wildwood’s captive breeding programme and also to examine specimen nests. The afternoon will be spent in the field surveying and finding evidence of these creatures, to demonstrate some of the factors that might influence their distribution in the environment.
