Hunting Course For Future Wildlife Professionals Now Accepting Applications
Long Point Waterfowl is a non-government organization that is dedicated to wetland and waterfowl research, conservation and education in the Great Lakes region. We developed our Hunting Course for Future Wildlife Professionals to provide college and university students in wildlife programs with the opportunity to increase their awareness of, and participate in, our hunting heritage. The workshop also teaches students that hunting is an important and cost effective wildlife management tool. The Hunting Course for Future Wildlife Professionals includes 6 days of hands-on activities, training and mentorship in hunting, wildlife conservation and management. Participants stay at Long Point Waterfowl’s Research & Education Centre and receive all the required training to hunt in this cost-effective, one-stop workshop.
Long Point Waterfowl decided to offer this course to provide future wildlife professionals with a cost-effective way to get their hunting licenses as well as the opportunity to learn more about the ecological, economic and social importance of hunting. This course is open to students currently enrolled in wildlife management programs at universities or colleges in Ontario.
