About your Diploma

Through a wildlife rehabilitation studies diploma, you gain an understanding on how to remove animals from life threatening situations. Assessing their health and tending to injuries and where possible treating them for infections and diseases.

The aim is to have the knowledge on how to properly reintroduce animals back into the wild. So you’ll learn about first aid for animals and how to minimise their stress during human contact.

In addition to this, you’ll gain an understanding on the legalities surrounding the removal and reintroduction of indigenous and non-indigenous species back into the wild.

Exploring the correct ways to approach wild animals, handle and care for them, while imposing minimal trauma, opens you up to a broad range of career opportunities in animal care. In careers such as an animal care or rescue centre worker, wildlife rehabilitator or countryside ranger.
