Zoom from a zoo!

Chibuzo in 6H reports on a zoom meeting with Whipsnade Zoo

On Tuesday, we had a zoom meeting with one of the zoo keepers at the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. We started off with learning about her role and daily jobs at the zoo while seeing the giraffes in the background! Then we looked at the different traits of: mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish and used a classification key to help us understand. We even saw a skull of a lion! We also discovered that there was more invertebrates than vertebrates on the planet with a 90%-10% split! We also looked at warm and cold blooded animals and observed a thermal picture of an elephant to help us understand. We finished with a Q&A session where we were able to ask any questions that we had.
