As part of Katelyn’s 30-week Level 4 Certificate in Conservation (Operations), she has mapped a local reserve, used GPS coordinates to place monitoring tunnels and subsequent traps. She has then gone on to clear traps, record the results and create a management plan for the area to present to stakeholders.
Katelyn feels like she has discovered the field for her after initially working and training in horticulture. She enjoys studying the way things are naturally and recommends the course to anyone interested in conservation.
