Darren and Ronda (Araucaria Ecotours) raised this orphaned black flying fox a couple of years ago

We’ve had many inquiries about such courses, including the one that was offered by Renee Chamberlain but the online version is unfortunately not currently  available

UPDATE: (December 2011): please go to http://www.msit.edu.au/csu/search.aspx?coursesearch=animal&go=Submit+Query and follow links to rehabilitation of birds or mammals

  1. Interested in doing the certificate II in animal studies as soon as possible, please.
    Thank you

    • Loretta, WTA itself does not run the course. It would be best to visit the website above, mentioned by Renee

  2. Hi Hayley (and others who have recently expressed interest).

    Renee has advised the following:
    The original Certificate III in Native Animal Rehabilitation has been discontinued and will be replaced with a new native animal rehabilitation skill set which is part of the national training package. The resources are currently under development for the new course and I anticipate we will start up early next year.

    The new skill set will not be exactly the same as the old Cert 3 course, but will still be available to study 100% online (i.e. flexibly). There may also be a Cert III Animal Studies online available soon after that. In the meantime, we are offering a Cert II Animal Studies which is part-time: 2 days on campus at Alex Hills and ½ day online (flexible).

    Please keep an eye on our website (see below) for updates closer to the end of this year, and if you have any further questions feel free to contact me.
