Today's NRTG #StudentSpotlight is featuring Jamie Trottier. Jamie has taken NRTG's Amphibian and Reptile Salvage Methods and Avian Nest Sweeps and Monitoring Methods with Jeannine Randall, and Fish Habitat Restoration Instream Techniques with Jeff Sereda.

"I am interested in... all the courses NRTG offers, as they all relate to my field in some way. My favourite course I've taken so far would be the Amphibian and Reptile Salvage Methods. I was able to learn about all the different salvage methods, and how to determine which salvage method(s) are most effective considering your target species, time of year, etc."

How has the course helped you in your career goals?
The Amphibian and Reptile Salvage Methods course gave me the knowledge and the confidence to be able to complete salvages from start to finish, including completing salvage applications with the province, and designing and conducting herptile salvages that will result in successful capture and relocation of the most species. Since taking the course I have become the lead herptile salvage coordinator within my company, and have begun training other team members on how to conduct salvage programs. My greatest achievement has been capturing and relocating 137 Pacific Chorus Frogs (as well as other species) from a drainage/riparian area that was later filled in under Section 11 Authorization.

Anything else that would be beneficial for us to know?
The instructor Jeannine Randall is very knowledgeable, positive and kind, and has become a role model of mine.

We are very proud of our students and their successes! Congratulations Jamie!


Happy Monday everyone!

Our courses take us all over North America where we often are fortunate enough to capture a stunning photo such as this one!

Taken on Vancouver Island, BC, a juvenile Great Horned Owl was discovered playing peekaboo.

Did you know Great Horned Owls are able to fly in near silence... and take prey by surprise? This is due to the shapes of their wings and the soft fringed edges of their feathers.

Wildlife Survey Field Methods: Ungulates - Online

Wildlife Survey Field Methods: Ungulates is an applied fully online, three-day course providing an introduction and overview of ground-based and aerial-survey methods for ungulates of North America. Using remote ...(online) instruction and assigned field exercises participants learn and gain practice conducting ground-based surveys for direct observation of individuals and measurement of animal sign such as scat and tracks. Instruction on aerial surveys are confined to classroom only; there is no field exercise associated with this component.

Visual survey methods (transect and block) are introduced as well as identification of sign (tracks, scat, markings). Information and data collected from ungulate carcasses are also explored. Information acquired from each method are reviewed with an emphasis on integration of methods to maximize data collection and inferences of habitat use and abundance. This course is a refinement and further investigation of methods introduced in the more generic introductory course Wildlife Survey Field Methods.

Each NRTG course includes free, lifetime admission. Enroll once - come back anytime.
