We really can bring the classroom and text book to life with our tremendous collection of artefacts (some of which are on loan to us from HM Customs), our real life stories of human/wildlife conflict and conservation efforts, and, of course, the zoo’s own animal and plant collection.
For business studies, leisure and tourism, the zoo is the perfect business for your students to base their research on. As we’re a charity, a conservation organisation and a visitor attraction we have to fulfill a diverse range of functions and our financial statements are ready and waiting for your students to access.
And for psychology students, what’s better than to be able to observe behaviours, for example communication and intelligence?
COMING SOON for a limited period:
Climate Change – our new walk and talk session in which we discuss ocean acidification, coral bleaching, effects on bird migration and what we can all do for sustainable life. For further details see AS/A2 Workshops – Science below.
We offer workshops which last 50 minutes and which we run either in our classrooms or in the zoo, where students can see with their own eyes animal adaptations and/or behaviour; it’s so much better than images in PowerPoint!
