Pupils of Argoed High School, Mynydd Isa, meet Chester Zoo safari ranger

ARGOED High School pupils were visited by a Chester Zoo safari ranger.

Becca Biddle met the Year 7 students to discuss aspects of her role at the zoo and what is being done to protect endangered species.

Pupils saw a baby elephant’s tusk and a handbag made from crocodile skin and learnt about how the animals were being hunted for fashion accessories.

The headteacher of the Mynydd Isa school, Simeon Molloy, said: “This was an exciting and informative visit and really captured the pupil’s imagination as well as opening their eyes to the problems faced by endangered species.

“I would like to thank Becca Biddle, the science department and the pupils for such an entertaining and informative event.”
