A new season of ‘Animal Fun Day’ short courses at Shuttleworth College is about to begin.

Young people aged 11-16 get the chance to peer into the lives of all sorts of animals, including creepy crawlies and slippery snakes.

Carl Groombridge, lecturer said: “This is a chance for young people to get up close to exotic creatures that they may otherwise only see on the TV.

Carl said: “The Animal Centre is home to just about every family of species in the world and habitats include a topical rainforest setting where recorded sounds of the forest give an added dimension to the environment.

“It offers young people a unique opportunity to learn about animal welfare and conservation – but with the magic ingredient of fun.  It’s a chance to have a “hands on” experience with creepy crawlies and slippery snakes and discover the secrets of these exotic creatures.”

Animal Fun Day is on Saturday 29th October from 9.30am until 12.30pm.
