Higher Education

These topics are aimed to students aged 16+ and provide expert insight to the role of global zoos and how they interlink with external companies and other are of employment. They will have the chance to engage in hands-on activities and case studies that will focus on global efforts to protect and preserve global wildlife. This will target different areas of learning including how science is used in context to protect endangered species, and the different careers and roles involved both within the zoo and conservation organisations.

Each topic aims to follow the guidelines outlined in the Northern Ireland Curriculum. It focuses on the development of knowledge, skills and understanding of adaptions, survival, and conservation.
