Classification, taxonomy and evolution Classification, taxonomy and evolution Welcome to the WildlifeCampus Game Ranging (Field Guiding) Course! You have made an excellent choice. Get ready to explore the world of wildlife like never before! This module introduces the language of science and gives a detailed look at how animals are divided into different groups. The second component outlines the Origin of Life, Evolution and Natural Selection.
Invertebrates Invertebrates This module introduces students to the world of invertebrates. We learn about spiders, scorpions, insects, ticks, mites, molluscs, millipedes and other small, fascinating creatures found in African ecosystems.
Amphibians Amphibians The amphibia are among the earliest known groups of vertebrates on earth, with fossil remains dating back to 400 million years ago. In this module, we explore various aspects of the class of Amphibia.
Reptiles Reptiles In this module, we explore the class Reptilia. Turtles, terrapins, tortoises, lizards, snakes and crocodiles are examined in four concise components.
Ichthyology Ichthyology This module introduces the enormous subject of Ichthyology. It is included here for completeness since fish are a very important vertebrate class of animals. A basic look at their general structure, senses, physiology and types found in South Africa makes up the one component in this module.
Birds Birds This beautifully illustrated module covers many aspects of birds, including their origins, flight, biology, ecology, conservation and identification. Included in this module is the WildlifeCampus Top 100 birds, as well as birding ethics and recently updated imagery.
Mammals Mammals Defining a mammal is not an entirely simple process. Some characteristics are unique to the group, and some are shared by others. This module contains 20 individual components in which we explore an introduction to mammals and go into detail on some key species.
Ethology Ethology A substantial grounding to the fascinating subject of animal behaviour. The components detail: social organisation, foraging, predatory behaviour, communication, grooming, play, sleeping, territoriality, fighting, submission, dominance, anti-predator behaviour, sexual behaviour and parental care.

Game ranging skills part # 1 Game ranging skills part # 1 Here, we include the exciting topics of anticipating animal behaviour, approaching dangerous game and bush navigation. First aid for arthropod and snakebite, astronomy and habitat management each get an in-depth look. The module concludes with an enquiry into environmental sensitivity, ecotourism, impact tourism and sustainable tourism.
Game ranging skills part # 2 Game ranging skills part # 2 The final components that conclude the course are specifically aimed at the potential game ranger, but are equally applicable for the potential tourist. You never know when you might need to lend a hand. These components examine, dangerous game rifles, game vehicles and other equipment, game walks and drives, dealing with guests, communication and working in the industry.
