Brief description

This course is suitable for conservation professionals and experienced amateurs who are interested in developing their knowledge of conservation planning and habitat management. Covering a range of common examples, methods of restoring and creating grassland, woodland and some linear habitats will be described, with the chance to research a further topic in depth as home study. Learners will gain an insight into the reasons why such techniques are necessary in the context of current land use and be introduced to a range of situations where habitat recreation has been carried out, with guidance on evaluation techniques. A further home assignment after the course will enable learners to create a conservation plan of their choice with on-line tutor support.
Learners will be able to assess the suitability of a site for restoration work, including any limitations and/or challenges. They will be able to create a conservation plan for a chosen site - to include site assessment, appropriate selection of habitat restoration / creation techniques for a range of common habitats and suitable monitoring methods. Describe a range of methods that could be used to restore and/or create an additional habitat.
