Berkshire Agricultural College | BCA zoo is situated within a small area of Berkshire Agricultural College. It is primarily used as a training facility for students who enrol on the various animal management courses, with over 100 species of animals that range from scorpions to lemurs. Many of the animals are part of the European Endangered Species Programme and although being foremost training and educational centre, there are some public events and animal encounters available during weekends and student term breaks.
Paul Presents | BCA Zoo with Emily Wiltshire
Emily is the Zoo Educational Officer for various students on their animal training courses.
Would you know how to get a crocodile on the weighing scales? How crocs choose if they want male or female offspring? The we meet Cassandra, Boyce and marlin who enjoy their birthday parties and wonder at what a sparkle muffin is, never mind the entrance fee to see the animals kept in The Tower of London in the Victorian days to scrotum frog smoothies.
Emily tells us of the conservation work and education that the zoo does today and also how you can visit the zoo during term breaks and weekends for meekest encounters, lambing and reptile encounters or school holiday courses.
