Project learning


For all higher secondary students and high school students who would like to do their research project on biology, the Bratislava Zoo’s Department of Education has prepared a course with the goal of advising students and assisting them in executing the project. The subject matter for the projects can be varied, from ethological studies of primates, land mammals, birds or reptiles, to studies focused on how the Zoo functions, endangered species and ecology.
