Animal magic for Haslingden students



First published in News

ALL creatures great and small went into Haslingden High School during a visit from Zoo2U.

Lead science technician Claire Dawes arranged the visit as a reward for 20 members of her after-school animal club.

The school already has stick insects, gerbils, a tarantula, a corn snake and fish, which the students look after and learn about in the club, which is held every week.

Mrs Dawes said: “The Zoo2U people brought in a meerkat, an owl, two corn snakes, a chameleon, an iguana, a tortoise and a Madagasgan tenrec, a type of hedgehog that looks like a duckling but has sharp spikes with barbs on them. Each animal was introduced to the students and they were able to learn about it and ask questions. A couple of students fed the chameleon and the meerkat.

“It was a reward for the hard work of the club members.”
