Zoo vet apprentice
As we’re sure most of you are aware, wildlife protection and conservation relies on the future generations.
A large part of Paignton Zoo’s ethos is to inspire and educate young people and to assist them with their career choices – if animal care is the road they choose.
Our ‘sell out’ Zoo Vet Apprentice days have been a great success. The programme has been developed specially for young people aged 13-16 years with an interest in this field and enables them to gain a better understanding of Zoo veterinary work.
Dates for 2017: Thursday 6th or 13th April
Time: 10am to 3:45pm
Age: Suitable for 13 to 16 year olds
For just £45, young people will get to spend the day amongst our vets, keepers and educators and will take part in the following activities:
- A guided tour of the Vet Centre
- Learning to identify animals from x-rays
- Scanning micro-chipped animals
- Practising blow pipe techniques
- Watching our elephant husbandry training
- Animal Health checks
- Learning to use a range of veterinary equipment
