Mrs Connor came in to our class to talk about her job as an Ecologist. Her job is clearing animal homes and giving them new ones. She helps companies follow the law when they are looking to build or knock something down. She helps animals such as badgers, bats, water voles and otters and much more.
She used a special machine and we pretended to be bats and the machine sensed us and set off an alarm to show we were there. That’s how she knows if bats are in the area and if they need rehomed.
We also passed round a skull, an antler, small dead bats and some poo. It was so fun. We watched some video footage of different badgers. At the end of it we had a quiz. Thank you Mrs Connor for sharing your job with us.
