Wildlife Capture and Transport Pennsylvania Certification Class

For those seeking permits for the capture and transport of wildlife in Pennsylvania, this all-day course is the first step in helping you meet the Pennsylvania state permitting requirements.

This entertaining and enlightening course covers the basics of wildlife capture in the field including legal issues, safety, equipment, recognizing true emergencies, proper capture and handling techniques, public relations, and education.

A written exam will be given at the end of class. A passing score of 80% (along with sponsorship from a permitted wildlife rehabilitator and approval by the local WCO) is necessary for obtaining a permit in Pennsylvania.
