Biodiversity, Conservation And The Role Of Zoos
Discover how Banham Zoo is working with other zoos help to protect habitats and ecosystems around the world. How do breeding programmes work? How else can zoos contribute to conservation and what can we all do to help?
Find out about the world of work in this exciting and diverse setting. Whether your students
want to work with animals, become chefs, manage teams dealing with the public or want to
work in social networking, Banham Zoo is a great case study!
There’s No Business Like Zoo Business!
Banham Zoo has many interests, primarily as a place for the conservation and care of a variety of animals from around the world. However to do this, the zoo must operate successfully as a business. In this session we look at the history of the zoo, our customers, marketing and job roles within the zoo.
Health & Safety
Here at the zoo health & safety of the visitors, staff and animals is of prime importance. This
session looks at risk assessment and minimizing risks, first aid, safety procedures, training,
legislation and signage within the zoo.
Science In The Workplace
Science is essential in running a zoo! Biology, chemistry, veterinary medicines, physics, maths,
environmental science and information technology! Find out how we use science and why it
is so important to us.
