We wanted to capture the exciting and amazing experience that participants have when they come on one of our residential programs. I think what makes it even more important is that what they learn, and experience on the course, is very personal. This comes through the direct contact with the animals, as well as through the friendships made, and experiences shared with the other they meet on the course.
This fun and engaging opportunity is ideal for anyone with a passion for animals and conservation, or anyone looking to study a related area.
For groups – Open dates
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the week that I was able to do with Sam Sykes™ I gained some great experiences, which’ll help me in the future as I’ll be able to write this on my personal statement for university. Just wanted to let you know that I have a place on the Whipsnade Zoo Academy Course next August, which I’m also looking forward to.”
