+Culture Shots

I’d like to say a big thanks to all the Salford University students who gave their talk today, well done guys, it was great! The next talk in the series is all about volunteer opportunities in the Ecuadorian rainforest – so if you’re interested in this be sure to keep an eye on the blog for more details coming soon.

One blog I have been keeping an eye on myself this week has been one that’s focused on ‘Culture Shots; Museum & Galleries Week’,     a superb initiative that’s involved a wide variety of Museum and Gallery events taking place within 5 hospitals in Manchester. The week-long packed programme for health professionals and patients has been aimed at improving peoples health and well-being.

Well, when I was over at the Children’s Hospital yesterday I certainly saw lots of smiles – which have got to be good for your health! It was a real pleasure to support the initiative and to let the staff and the kids experience some of our animals first-hand. I hope everyone who attended enjoyed it as much as I did being there.

The whole initiative appears to be a huge success – many congratulations to all involved and those who have worked so hard in putting it together!      Read more

  1. We visited the museum on the 16th February and arranged a tour of the vivarium and are glad we did. We were met by Adam who introduced us to Andrew who,gave us a brief of what was to happen. Due to half term we would be seeing the animals where they were kept rather than in the vivarium.He showed us various species of rare amphibians and was very knowledgeable and informative. He obviously cares and is very devoted to his work. Thank you all and good luck with your future endeavours.
