Student Environmental Enrichment Course (SEEC), October 2015

FSZ enrichment course 11866480 882629695142692 9173715846559459708 n

DATE CHANGE: New dates are 13 - 16 October 2015.

SEEC's are designed around the full SHAPE workshop format and are accredited by BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums). The course is aimed primarily at college and university students (past or present) who do not currently work within a zoo setting, but are looking to do so as a career.

Five Sisters Zoo will be hosting this course on 13 - 16 October 2015. The course will start at 11.30 on Monday 19 October and end at 5.00 PM on 22 October.

Over the three and a half days participants will gain a background in animal welfare and enrichment, dealing with welfare needs of different species, as well as providing practical skills in designing, building and testing enrichment within the settings of a working animal collection. Our aim is to provide participants valuable experience and an overview of additional useful skills to a would-be keeper’s CV. Please note that you must be 18yrs or over to attend this course.

The cost of the course is £150 (exc. VAT).
