Despite the poor weather, our February Animal Academy has been a declared a success.

BCA Zoo has welcomed a number of children to participate in our academy which runs on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays over the half term. The young attendees were able to get a taste of what it’s like to care for a large range of species ranging from meerkats to cows.

There were a number of activities which the academy members got involved in which included halter training our calves and goats and making enrichment for some of the zoo animals. There were some especially happy faces when some of the group got the chance to get up close to our group of meerkats and meet some of our reptiles.
