Box-ing clever!

Discovery Centre Presenters have two brand new training boxes to work with thanks to the handiwork of DZG maintenance man Mike Grace.

dzg_rat_box_4Presenter, Becky Iwahashi, said: “We simply mentioned the idea to Mike and he went away and designed, made and decorated the wooden boxes.

“They are brilliant and just what we wanted and they have been put straight into use with our rat training and are used daily in our Pom-Bear sponsored Go Wild! Show.

Alongside learning about a variety of creatures in the daily shows there’s also a chance to win some of the new Pom-Bear Zoo cheesy treats.
