South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Cumbria
June 18th 2012 (also available on Tuesday 19th June 2012)
(10am to 5pm with a lunch break and am/pm short break)
A Communicating with Wild Animals day with Amelia Kinkade
Come and meet Tigers, Lions, Condors, Giraffe, Lemurs and much, much more at:
South Lakes Wild Animal Park Broughton Road, Dalton in Furness Cumbria, LA15 8JR
Many of the animals such as lemurs, kangaroos, emus and tamarins are allowed to wander freely. Please note that this experience is only open to students who have undertaken one of Amelia’s 2 day UK courses, or who will have done so by the date of this event.
This is your chance to practice your communication skills with wild animals alongside an expert.
Amelia will teach how to communicate with lions, tigers, penguins, and and array of other species. A member of the Park Staff ( known as Animal carers, not Animal Keepers at this park as it best reflects their job) will accompany the group some of the time to confirm the relationships, histories, medical conditions, and behaviour problems of the wild animals. For the last 2 years we have been privileged to have the park owner, David Gill, who is famous for his conservation work around the world, come and talk to the students. He has also been interested to get feedback on the communications between students and animals at the park. Whilst we hope that David may be available to meet the 2012 students on 18th and 19th June, this cannot be assured. The 2011 students enjoyed hand feeding the giraffes and penguins.
