Children’s guide on sale

Photography students from Dudley College have been busy putting DZC’s animals in the frame to produce a colourful guide book for our younger visitors, which is perfect for summer holiday visits!

‘The Little Zoo Book’ has been created by the neighbouring college’s Level 3 Year 2 Photography students to introduce children to some of the world’s rarest animals around the 40-acre site as well as raising funds for DZC’s conservation work.

DZC Media and Communications Officer Rachel Hickman, said: “The zoo’s partnership with Dudley College continues to go from strength-to-strength and we’re really impressed with the guide book the talented team have produced.

“The A5 spiral bound guide is aimed specifically for our younger visitors to use as they’re making their way around the zoo site and is filled with fun-facts about some of our most popular species, as well as games and activities.”

‘The Little Zoo Book’ is available from the Safari Shop, priced £3, with all proceeds going towards DZC’s contribution to Sintang Orangutan Center in Indonesia.

Dudley College Lecturer and Project Organiser, Luke Cowdell, said: “Our Level 3 Year 2 Photography students were tasked to create a product for charity.

“Building on long lasting and well-established links with Dudley Zoo they were given the opportunity to make a children’s information and activity book.

“Students worked hard to research information, create games and take photographs for this book aimed at young children.

“This was a challenging project which helped students work together as a team and build their project management skills.”
