Wildlife ACT course
Need to decide what tracking technology to use for your upcoming masters project? Look no further than this course to see what is available and then, later, you can focus in on the technology that excites you most.



"An ideal way to learn about the wider applications of tracking through technology."



I loved the way the quizzes had me researching with their three key words Respond -Engage - Research.



Do you need to use nocturnal call ups, telemetry, GPS or GSM Collars? Maybe chips in rhino horns or rhino anklets? How do we track and monitor priority species through the tracking technologies that are available to us - but most importantly why?

The Wildlife ACT Way!


Tracking is a crucial skill within conservation management – that expert tracker may not be you, but, if you can learn to build your awareness of the ground, aerial and vocal clues that surround us, then you will be better versed, more rounded in your understanding for the contribution that tracking makes to the conservation of our protected areas.


Tracking is a core aspect of Wildlife ACT’s on-the-ground operations, be this through monitoring and tracking technology, our support and partnering with K9 anti-poaching dog units and our ultlisation of the skills of incredible trackers.

Learn about innovations that are protecting and monitoring


Monitoring and evaluation is critical and never more so in the illegal wildlife trade industry which target wildife in remote regions which are difficult and expensive to monitor

Interactive 'Scene Investigations' & useful career advice


Tracking is a learning process, no-one knows it all, it is a puzzle to solve and it is about learning to get to know the animals you are tracking – their behaviours, their traits, their nuances.

An Introduction and Overview of Technologoies used in the Field

Join us as we look at the latest wildlife tracking technologies, what is available on the market, how and where it is used, how you choose what to use and what Wildlife ACT uses in the field. We look at e- and i-DNA, nocturnal and underwater tracking, algorithms, AI and game theory in conservation. Each learning hour tests your own interpretation and observation skills through interactive Scene Investigations that are reviewed throught the course.

Hi, I'm Megan!

Wildlife Monitor and Conservation Course Instructor.

I am here to help guide the paths of all the inquisitive conservationists out there!

When not in the field getting hands dirty with practical work and monitoring, I spend my time putting my conservation knowledge to the test with research reports and creating new activities for when I can get into the field next!

All the funds raised from this course are helping to keep Wildlife ACT operational during these COVID pandemic times. By simply taking the course, you are helping to support the work that we do to protect wildlife, thank you.
