Animal Management Level 3 students are currently studying enclosure design. They are looking at all aspects of setting up an animal enclosure, including how to use the enclosure space effectively, what kind of enrichment to use for animals and how to maintain environmental conditions.
The students are putting what they've learned into practice and have been looking around the animal unit, evaluating the enclosures which are currently used and making plans as to how they may be improved. The students created to scale drawings of their ideas and discussed the different practicalities of how to make the enclosure. In future lessons, the students will have the chance to put their plans in place and redesign the enclosures they have chosen.
