I was working for about six months as a wildlife officer on Fort Bragg when I started researching courses in wildlife handling and chemical immobilization. Being completely inexperienced, I soon found there were plenty of schools advertised, but Global Wildlife Resources stood out amongst the pack. And I’m very glad I chose them! Dr. Mark Johnson expertly meshes friendly classroom instruction with highly realistic, student-driven, hands-on practical exercises so as to create a learning environment that greatly maximizes learning potential. His direct technical applications, passionate desire to educate all in this unique skill, and sincere respect for all life, were highly appreciated and very refreshing from a student point of view. As was my goal, I am now highly proficient with the knowledge and confidence I learned from Dr. Johnson’s teachings. Our course was graciously hosted by the High Lonesome Ranch in Debeque, another perfect combination amidst the breath taking beauty of the best Colorado has to offer, and the finest back country resort hospitality there is! I have attended many training seminars and certification courses throughout my career, and this experience was absolutely top notch. 10 out of 10!
