    I want any inform for seqld or north coast nsw on doing courses to become a relocators legally
    If anyone can help that would be great.
    We don't have anyone in lismore or surrounding areas
     
  2. There is a course that's run by WIRES coming up in Grafton in November (exact dates I'm not certain), but contact Sandra Byrne on 6645 4664 for more details. You may have to be a WIRES member in the first instance and you'll need to book soon as places fill fast. We already have two UNE students heading for the course from Armidale.

    Hope this is useful.

    Ok thanks weekend?
     
  4. Not certain of the dates, Damo,

    Sandra would have that info. The WIRES membership covers all the legal aspects (insurance, etc) and is cheap at half the price:)! You can specify with WIRES that your only interested in reptile relocation and rehab so you don't end up with loads of marsupials/birds and you'll get all callouts through WIRES (350+ in your area last time I heard).

    Goodluck, you wont regret it!

    Jonno from ERD also runs a course:)!!

    That number is fax and connected to computer
     
  6. I've just had a word with Sandra and she reckons a thunderstorm went through and that maybe why you couldn't contact on this number? Def works, though:).

    BTW, the Grafton course is only a refresher, so for people with prior experience and not open to newcombers (apologies for the bum steer). The first timers course is held at Glenreagh on the weekend of 10/11 Nov (one day course 9-5). I'll PM her email addy.

    Some, not all. We regularly train all sorts of government departments, including a group of senior Parks rangers recently.

    Talking to Alex from derm and cameron about you the other day, just telling them how good a course you run, sorry I would have mentioned you too jonno on here but I heard a whisper ages ago that you stopped doing the courses, and concentrated on something up north. (Note To Self - Chinese whispers are not always right) Sorry Jonno

    G'day mate,

    Not a drama - I hear all sorts of stuff about what I'm up to, none of it is ever as exciting in reality though. We're still definitely running courses all over the place, we just started a new fauna management company last year though which consumes a lot of my time.

    Hat off to you Jonno.
