An introductory snare workshop is being held October 1-2, 2022 in Cape Town, South Africa. The training will bring together landowners, communities, researchers, and wildlife rehabilitation experts to better protect the area wildlife from snares, a common poaching tool.
Participants will learn how to identify, remove, reduce, and prevent snares in and around valuable wildlife habitat. The workshop will be taught by Global Conservation Force CEO/President, Mike Veale. Three graduates of last year’s Global Conservation Force anti-poaching ranger training will join Mike. They will serve as assistant instructors and help translate course materials and discussions for local community members.
The snare workshop is hosted in partnership with Cape Leopard Trust, Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, LandCare South Africa, Western Cape Government, and Global Conservation Force.
The two-day workshop is free to attend and includes entry to Helderberg Nature Reserve, specialist training and course content, as well as food and refreshments. Email email@example.com to reserve a spot. Deadline to register is September 19, 2022.
