The lack of proper preparation for winter field work in wildlife research can pose a dangerous risk to technicians and animals, potentially cause damage to equipment and habitat, and may affect the quality of data collection. Direct winter technician experience can be difficult to obtain and time consuming for employers to train, but is critical for effectively meeting research goals and creating a competitive marketplace for technicians. This course aims to cover all aspects of basic winter field skills to prepare technicians for the rigors of the season.
