Year 12 Psychology Students visit Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust

4th March 2013

On Monday 4th March, thirty Year 12 Psychology students spent the morning at Durrell.

The aim of the visit was to provide the students with firsthand experience of researching animals. We experienced an informative tour by Chris Siouville, Education Officer, who was able to suggest numerous research topics. The students observed either Sumatran orangutans, western lowland gorillas, black macaques or the golden lion tamarind. They were able to carrying out practical work in a tranquil environment whilst perfecting their skills in observation research.

Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust has gained a worldwide reputation for its pioneering conservation techniques and has made a significant difference to more than 30 endangered species worldwide. We are fortunate to be able to visit such an amazing wildlife park so close to JCG.
