The Animal Management Centre provides a state-of-the-art setting for studying our animal management and wildlife conservation courses. It provides spacious theory and practical rooms whilst housing an extensive animal collection.
Specialist animal areas include nocturnal and non-nocturnal rodent rooms, both home to some unusual species as well as those commonly kept as domestic pets. The exotic and amphibian areas house a range of snakes, lizards, tortoises, turtles, frogs, newts and toads, while for those interested in fish we have cold and tropical fish tanks.
Outside, we have areas for our otters, marmosets, raccoon dog and birds of prey, while students also enjoy access to Rodway Farm’s animals and the horses at our Equestrian Centre to increase their experience with large animals. Students also enjoy access to external environments in the local area, including Steart Marshes (WWT).
