Have you ever wondered who made a track that you found? Maybe you are an experienced
animal tracker who would like to learn more? Animals are all around us, but have learned to
hide themselves from us. Despite being out of sight, they do leave tracks and other signs. By
recognising these, we become aware of their presence and their activities when we are not
around. Think of tracks, scat and other signs such as those left after a feeding, or after resting.
We at Weylin Tracking are fascinated by these tracks and signs and are passionately
motivated to teach others. For this purpose, we are constantly developing innovative working
methods. We use these methods to organise standard tracking courses for the layperson, but
we can also provide courses tailored to ecologists with specific interests. Through our field
guides we give people the opportunity to identify the animals who made the tracks and signs in the field.
We are based in the city of Deventer, the Netherlands. Our Dutch website can be found here.

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.
“Lost”, David Wagoner
Finally, Weylin means 'son of the wolf' in an old Celtic language.
