This one day course is for anyone wanting to improve their skills in recognising and reporting wildlife crime or when acting as a witness. 

This course is part of the Bearing Witness for Wildlife Conservation Wildlife Crime Project. The project recognises that wildlife crime is not currently recorded, investigated or prosecuted effectively and this training course will help us start addressing this need.

The course will be presented by Craig Fellowes assisted by BCT's Conservation Wildlife Crime Officer Pete Charleston. Between them they have over sixty years of policing experience and almost 50 years' experience investigating wildlife crime.
