DMZAA Student 2017 – 2019

Partaking in the DMZAA course allowed me to learn so much about areas of zoo management that I had no experience in. As well as learning about the management of species that I had never worked with. It broadened my understanding of the industry and opened my eyes to things I had not considered before. The residential week was a fantastic opportunity to hear speakers from the zookeeping industry with decades of experience in various fields. The ethics and welfare discussion in particular, opened my eyes to so much and changed the way I view my job, for that I’m very grateful.
