A brand new Animal Management Centre has been built at Merrist Wood College, at a cost of £4.5m

The Animal Management Centre has been designed to provide a state-of-the-art building for students studying Animal Management and Animal Behaviour and Welfare. The centre includes a desert room, a tropical room and a nocturnal room.

The new Animal Management Centre will enable the College to deliver a broader, more exciting curriculum for learners. Consequently we will be able to care for a much wider variety of species in a more natural environment. Furthermore it will allow students to interact with them more, hence it will enable us as a College to provide modern accommodation. This not only meets the needs of the current curriculum, but is also adaptable to respond as the industry changes in the future.

The Centre is home a wide variety of species including:

  • Bearded dragons

  • Sugar gliders

  • Burrowing owls

  • Three banded armadillo

  • Sulcata tortoises

  • Boa constrictor

  • Poison dart frog

  • Royal pythons

  • Chilean rose tarantula

  • Crested gecko

  • Giant African land snails
