Zoo Biology

This course represents a unique opportunity for you to study a wider range of species than those covered in traditional Zoology degrees. Your learning will focus on the biology of exotic species, namely non-domestic and non-UK wildlife, and how to apply this to all aspects of the management and conservation of captive populations. The course also includes field trips to UK zoos and wildlife parks, with optional project trips to Jersey Zoo, Mauritius and Madagascar. Core scientific study is supported by our specialist Animal Unit. This purpose-built centre houses approximately 150 animals of 40 species, including various exotic species. NTU is a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA). We are also a teaching provider for zoo animal record keeping via the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS).
