It has been a fabulous start of the year at Bicton College thanks to the arrival of a family of meerkats.
To celebrate the new additions the College is asking the public to come up with names for the cute and curious creatures at the Devon County Show in May.
Staff and students at Bicton College’s state-of-the-art Animal Management Centre have created a meerkat paradise and Head Curator at the Animal Centre, Chloe Chart, said “everyone is delighted to welcome the meerkats”.
“They are a great addition to our Animal Centre, and will be a fantastic learning resource for our students to study, as well as monitor, feed and clean,” she added.
The meerkats join more than XXX other species of small animals residing on Bicton College’s impressive grounds.
For those who want to see their name chosen for one of the members of the meerkat family, they need to head to Bicton College’s stand at the Devon County Show, which runs from 18 to 20 May, where there will be a competition to name the meerkats.
Thanks to the stunning grounds, industry-standard facilities and expert tuition, Animal Care students at Bicton College progress into a multitude of rewarding careers within the animal managements and care industries. Recent Alumni visits include the Blue Cross, Secret World Wildlife Rescue, Backy Falls Wildlife park, National Animal Welfare Trust and many more!
