Meerkats benefit from education enrichment

Our meerkats benefited from our first on-site education session for 20 months, as they received enrichment made by students from Solihull College.

The teenagers were taking part in our new Zoo Cares workshop, learning about the role of zoos in the modern world.

As part of the session, they also discovered about animal diets, enclosure design and enrichment. They then got the opportunity to design and create their own enrichment devices before seeing it in action!

We’ve restarted a limited programme of workshops since the covid pandemic and Solihull College’s was the first in a number of education sessions booked into our diary over the next few months.

If you work at a school and would like to find out about our education programme, which include suitability for EYFS up to post 16, please email our Marketing Assistant, for more information.
