Description

Fauna Rescue of South Australia Inc. invites you to join us for our upcoming POSSUM WORKSHOP being held on SUNDAY, 22 April 2018. Start 12:30pm, End 4:30pm. Afternoon tea provided; no lunch time break.

Workshops are open to Fauna Rescue SA members and the general public. Species Workshops offer more intensive training and information about the main native wildlife species we work with. It is necessary to attend a New Member Orientation Workshop as well as the relevant Species Workshop if you intend to become actively involved in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. Come to a New Member Orientation Workshop to learn more about who we are, what we do and the variety of ways in which you can help save SA's wildlife, as well as first-care should you find wildlife needing help.

Workshops are a good opportunity to meet other members.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Our Possum Workshop will provide you with initial skills and knowledge required to rescue, rehabilitate and release possums in SA, as well as information of interest to those who would simply like to understand more about living with urban wildlife.

Topics covered include:
- Species identification
- Differing Nutritional Requirements
- Common Illnesses / Ailments / Injuries
- Husbandry Requirements
- Rescue techniques
