Real Life Biology in Use
Site: Lotherton Hall
This workshop is led by museums staff.
What makes Bird Garden’s like Lotherton’s so important? What would happen if they weren’t there? What happens as part of a breeding programme? Investigate the answers to these questions and more during this two-hour workshop for AS/A Level students.
During this two-hour workshop, AS/A Level students will investigate into the main causes of extinction and how collections like Lotherton Bird Garden are using breeding programmes to help in the conservation of rare and endangered species. The workshop includes an interactive guided tour of the Bird Garden.
Supporting talk notes are available as part of six “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Birds” self-led student packs.
