Last term Animal Studies students looked at animal-based businesses, getting a visit from some friendly canines and a dog washer. This term they’ve experienced the company of some smaller creatures, welcoming turkey chicks and guinea pigs to the classroom.

The students have been learning about how to look after them, examining the food and shelter requirements needed to care for them properly. Getting some hands-on time helps them understand these needs better and, of course, fulfills the cuteness quota that inspires many to take this subject in the first place!
