FORM 5'S ECOSYSTEM EXPLORATION!

Form 5 Wildlife Park 003

On Monday, Form 5 developed their understanding of different habitats and ecosystems by visiting the Peak Wildlife Park in Leek.

 

Whilst at the park, they were given an expert talk by an experienced keeper who showed them the various species at the park, and explained where they would naturally be found, and in which type of biome (natural ecosystem) they are located globally.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed learning about the habitats of a range of creatures, including the Humboldt Penguin, desert meerkat, ring-tailed Lemur, Warty Pig and Wallabies. Some pupils even got the opportunity (if they were quiet and patient!) to have the wallabies eat out of their hand!

The park is located in an idyllic setting near the Peak District for these vulnerable to endangered species to breed and grow, and Form 5 maintained enthusiasm, good behaviour and respect for the wildlife during the visit.
