Our ever-expanding, on-site Animal Care unit at Boston College contains an impressive variety of animals such as bearded dragons, snakes, tortoises, chameleons, geckos, rabbits, mice, degus, parrots, budgies and many more small animals, birds and reptiles!
Studying theory and practical units on one of our Animal Care or Animal Management courses, you will use rotas to take ‘hands-on’ responsibility of the animals in the unit, enabling you to build up valuable industry experience and skills. You will learn about, and carry out, daily tasks to maintain animal accommodation, undertake practical animal feeding and handling, support animal health and welfare and study the behaviour of a wide variety of animals.
