This session takes place in different places around the Park: On the Chimp platform, the Africa enclosure and at our Ranger Station at the Rhino Bus Stop. By undertaking activities that real Rangers do, students learn to empathise with the role. Students use field skills and appropriate contextual language to investigate and monitor animals. Using their senses, students will develop spatial awareness while observing animals; their adaptations for survival and the role of zoos in managing species.
Students will understand that managing animals in a zoo environment requires knowledge of animal behaviour and that humans put animals at risk by impacting on food webs and habitat.
