At the zoo

Length of workshop 90 mins

Discover how we prevent extinction, focusing on communication and how to share the message at the zoo and around the world.

What is our zoo masterplan? In this session, we start by sharing our strategies and mission statement. Then, we explore the role of education in conservation and why it’s so important that we share our conservation strategies in order to empower people to make a difference.

Next, we look at the different communication methods available to us and how they might suit different audiences.

Your students will then get the opportunity to plan their own piece of interpretation, raising awareness of a conservation issue or encouraging people to take action to help their chosen species.

Finally, we have a case study revealing the power of interpretation and how it can support our community conservation projects overseas.
