Animal Behaviour Study and Orienteering Challenge

The Package includes an Animal Behaviour study and a fun, hands on Orienteering challenge!

Price: €10.00 per head

Trained facilitators on site

Animal Behaviour Study:

During this study the students will observe their assigned animal and be tasked with making a suitable enrichment device. Students will give their device to their animal and observe the behavioral responses. Students will be assigned their animals prior to the visit as a small amount of research will be required. Students (and teachers!!) will then be able to meet some of our animals in an animal interaction session.

Orienteering:

Secret Valleys orienteering is orienteering with a difference! This requires students team work and to switch on those thinking caps! Our purpose designed orienteering challenge involves both mental and physical stimulation and a bit of mud to create a memorable experience!

All students will be able to partake in both activities on the day.
