The first of our Night With The Tigers event was a huge success! Units from across the Region had a fantastic time at Dartmoor Zoo, taking part in workshops on close encounters, animal enrichment and animal behaviour, organised by the zoo’s education team. Girls and their leaders got a chance to get up close and personal with giant African snails, stick insects and even stroke real tiger fur.
The girls then set up camp and had a group BBQ before taking part in a dusk zoo trail competition and twilight tour before settling in for bed. The next day the girls had the opportunity to complete some of the ‘Night with the Tigers’ resource pack activities that was created by Girlguiding South West England in conjunction with the zoo.
