Note - This course is designed to impart knowledge to students but in a way that is enjoyable and fun. It is aimed at people with no previous, or very little knowledge of wolves. Becoming a wolf ‘expert’ takes many years so this course shouldn’t be seen as a way of becoming that in just ten months but instead a chance to learn more about wolves at a basic level, with the added opportunity to see and perhaps even meet a wolf up close.
