Here are some of our upcoming projects you could be getting involved in:
- BIAZA Grab that gap! | Monday 4th – 8th February 2019
Sessions will seek to engage pupils with the redesign of wild spaces within their school grounds for the benefit of native species. This will be part 1 of a 2-part workshop which will be followed up in June’s BIAZA BioBlitz roadshow. Schools will be encouraged to implement wildlife friendly spaces within their school between Feb-June following their participation in this roadshow.
- British Science Week 2019 | Friday 8th – Friday 15th March 2019
The overarching theme for the British Science Week 2018 roadshow was ‘Unveiling the ‘Hidden Science’ behind zoos and safari parks’. To achieve this a series of interactive activities were devised on the following topics: Captive Breeding, Animal Identification, Animal Nutrition, Animal Enclosures.
For 2019 the topic will be all about ‘Journeys!’
In this roadshow we’ll be looking at the journeys animals take, with a particular focus on our White rhinos and the European Breeding Programme.
