About this Unit
This unit introduces students to the varying relationships between humans and animals including domestication, the role of animals for companionship, as workers, the traditional role of animals in agriculture, wildlife and zoo animals and their increasingly recognised aesthetic and therapeutic roles. Students will work with a variety of domesticated animals, captive native mammals, and reptiles on-campus, and in a variety of animal industries off campus, including wildlife parks and zoos. The unit includes a balance of theoretical and practical work in the areas of behaviour and handling, basic husbandry, health care, and ethical management.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Laboratory coats, closed in work boots, long pants and long-sleeved shirt.
