An introduction to life in the Scottish forest and the diversity of animals living there. Children discover the structure and biodiversity of forests through activities and discussion. They will have the chance to observe and handle mini-beasts as well as some of our unique biofacts such as feathers.
Find out about the design of the enclosures for animals, what keeps our animals happy and what all captive animals need. This session includes a tour of some of our animal enclosures where the features will be described and the five freedoms of captive animals can be explained. The session will finish with the students designing their own enclosure, including rough measurements.
