Animal Management

The newest edition to The Living Rainforest’s ever developing education program! This course is designed for college or university students wishing to progress into the exciting world of animal management and care. The students will join The Living Rainforest’s experienced team of animal keepers for a half day’s worth of essential learning outcomes for exotic animal care. Students will have the chance to get involved with the general day to day husbandry of the animals (cleaning, feeding and enclosure maintenance).

The Living Rainforest provides students with a unique opportunity to gain practical experience working with exotic animals such as monkeys, stingrays and exotic birds, all of which can be found in few other teaching collections, whilst always being in the capable hands of our keeper team.  We can offer half-day practical sessions running  10am – 1pm  with up to 4 students per keeper (maximum of 4 keepers available per day) or guided tours are available with up to 15 students per tour.

Tour and practical session content can be tailored to individual requests and can include subjects such as:

Nutrition, Legislation, Enclosure Design, Quarantine & Biosecurity

Prices start from £105 (including VAT) for the Animal Management course at The Living Rainforest.
