He has delivered training overseas, addressed conference and presented seminars in other countries. He has worked in partnership with the UK Border Agency on the trade in endangered species, and assisted in reviewing legislation and regulations. He has been involved in a number of badger cases over the years, acting as a competent witness in such related cases.
Craid has recently delivered training to some wildlife trusts, wardens, hawk and owl trust, BAWC, RSPB, along with some of their very valuable volunteers, in wildlife crime awareness. He has led training sessions at the Natural History Museum, for tree surgeons, pest controllers, and currently in discussions, with several other wildlife trusts, and even as far a field to Cornwall.
