The Advanced Higher Biology class attended a global classroom conference at Edinburgh zoo on Thursday the 29th of November.
The conference was organised and staffed by members of the Royal Zoological society of Scotland (RZSS). The focus of the event was to raise the awareness of the illegal trade in wildlife that is going on around the world, particularly the trade in Asian Songbirds in South East Asia.
The pupils were given the opportunity to take part in workshops throughout the zoo, listen to expert speeches and also got to see some of the species which are illegally traded. The pupils gained some real life knowledge which will be applicable to their studies in the Advanced Higher Biology course.
