Activity description

This is an "introductory" course into the research and conservation that the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland is involved in. The course will cover some of the RZSS on-site research and also include information on the RZSS conservation work both in the UK and abroad. Sessions will include classroom talks and discussions and time in the zoo. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: No prior knowledge required. An interest/enthusiasm for animal biology or wildlife conservation would be an advantage. Participants should note that RZSS Edinburgh is situated on a hill and there will be a certain amount of standing and walking so participants who have any mobility problems should bear this in mind. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course, students will have: • acquired an understanding of how RZSS and other conservation organisations are involved in research to further improve animal care and conservation. • the ability to discuss the wide field of zoo research and conservation. • to discuss and form opinions upon wildlife conservation and the techniques used to support species and habitats MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENTS: None.
