We were so pleased to welcome students from South Gloucestershire and Stroud College to our new education centre for a three day residential training course. The students were in their second year of studying Zoological Management and applied animal behaviour and once the introductions were out of the way, they were keen to get started.
The three day course covered all aspects of primate welfare and conservation with talks and practical sessions led by Alison and the some of the Monkey World team, covering topics such as enclosure design, animal husbandry right through to enrichment, operant conditioning and advice on how to get their dream job working with animals.
It was great few days and we already have booked in another course for next year for a 5 day course! Stay tuned!
