While feeding, kids can observe animals in their natural habitat. It is not only the movement of the animals, but also the eating habits which can be studied during these feedings. These events are held by skilled animal caregivers, who are willing to talk about the habits and way of life of the given animal, and they are more than happy to answer the arising questions. These feedigns are only available as part of other events in the zoo (tours, zoo-birthdays, etc.)
During the summer vacation, the zoo-camp is available for 9 weeks. Kids aged between 9-14 years are welcome to experience this camp that does not only provide diversified programmes but also ensure a useful way to spend their summer vacation by acquiring new knowledge in the camp. Most of their time is spent around the animals (mainly cleaning and feeding tasks) but we put emphasis on teaching kids about our inhabitants. Amongst many other programmes, there are lectures, playful contests, craft workshops and a field trip.
Helping thesis writers and those on professional traineenship
We are willing to help university students with biology or pedagogy major (and also those learning event-organization) with their thesis and obligatory traineeship required for their qualification. On the occasion of our special events and camps we are happy to take on students from universities, colleges or vocational schools as trainees.
Our temporary exhibitions are major complements to educational opportunities. The well-equipped educational room is the venue of these exhibitions.
Zoo-pedagogy – 2018 in Füles Bástya
In the activities of Janos Xantus Zoo, education has always played a significant part. Based on this fact, zoo-pedagogy is emphasized in the classroom of Fülesbástya.
Some of the most important roles of a zoo include the protection of species and habitat along with nature conservation. In order to achieve these goals, environmental education is essential. We believe that it is highly important for kids to acquire knowledge and experience about animals in order to be able to respect their environment and realize the importance of nature conservation. This way we can hope they become responsible adults in the future.
The casemate has an event hall suitable for 35-40 people and its peculiarity is that it is furnished with terrariums, therefore natures is within a reach. Our demonstration centre provides excellent possibility for our visitors to observe animals in a habitat that is very similar to their own.
