This is a flexible programme designed to take full advantage of the unique animal collection on site and the conservation work being carried out by Durrell overseas and in Jersey.
Who is it for?
The programme has been designed to target the post 18 age range of students following diploma up to Masters degree courses in animal management, animal science and other conservation related subjects. Colleges and universities from the British Isles and Europe are the primary audience for this programme, though groups from further afield are encouraged to apply.
By the end of a conservation programme students will have a critical understanding of the role zoos play in conservation projects through the establishment and management of ex-situ populations and in-situ conservation efforts. Students will gain a greater appreciation of the range of careers in conservation and what qualities and qualifications are required to succeed.
As this is a programme designed to suit the needs of the groups that attend, each course is different. However, common topics include:
- Animal welfare and care
- Reproduction, health and genetics
- Animal nutrition
- Animal behaviour
- Reintroduction biology
- Habitat restoration
All courses involve behind the scenes activities and tours within the animal collection and a chance to meet and learn from animal staff.
