Mink control on Gower training course – Llanmadoc, Swansea

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

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.
