BASC will be running water vole awareness and mink control courses on Gower. At these courses you will learn all you need to know about monitoring for the presence of water vole and mink. You will receive free monitoring rafts, with monitoring pads and traps on a loan basis. We will train you how to safely and humanely trap and control mink, if you don’t want to dispatch them yourself, we can put you in touch with  BASC members who can do so on your behalf.

 BASC are running a free Mink control training course on Tuesday 4th June at Gower Golf Club. The course will start at 10am and will finish at approximately 1pm.

Training course price: Free of charge
