This is a growing collection of eBooks and videos for you to learn about wildlife capture, handling, and chemical immobilization.

We explore the details for conducting field captures and humane animal handling and sometimes just how to be a part of the wildlife profession (ie. finding work).

Many of these are excerpts from our GWR chemical capture courses.
