Study Time

Richard putting on his learning face

Salix’s Richard Edwards has enrolled on a course to learn more about the water vole and its habitat.

The course will look at water vole biology and history, the capture and care of water voles and how to handle the animal safely.

Further study areas will discuss how receptor sites are designed, develop a handbook for site developers and explain the legal status of these fascinating creatures.

Richard hopes that this course will further inform Salix’s habitat design process and build upon the success of the Soham project featured in the accompanying news article.
