“As a highly urbanised city, we share our space in Hong Kong with different animals and we are faced with issues related to them on a daily basis. With increasing awareness about animals, how they are treated and how they impact people’s lives in our Society, the "Animal Care" course provides a timely opportunity for young people to address these questions, by learning about animal needs and provision of care underpinned by scientific knowledge and social understanding.
This course is carefully designed so that students learn through an array of activities, to allow them exposure to different animals and their settings, and develop practical skills. In engaging with these activities, we hope students will enjoy their learning and on completion of the course, feel prepared to embark on further studies and future career options in animal care and make a difference in Society.”
