Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon that married up team building aspects with a hands on approach. The fact that we could build the feeders and then see them being placed in site and how the marmosets were attracted to them was priceless. Discussions with the keepers was also priceless as the feeders hadn't been used before so the keepers were as keen to see how they would enhance and enrich the marmoset areas. Definitely recommend this for other teams looking to do something different but hugely rewarding.
I have to admit that before the session I was feeling slightly cynical - was thinking that we would be doing something which would probably be fun, but which would just be for the sake of it. It was therefore really good to hear that we would be building something which would actually be used, and fantastic to get a chance to see the giraffes using the feeders we'd produced. All the staff were really warm and supportive, without feeding us too much information (ie - we still had to think for ourselves!). Thanks everyone.
The team building activity was organised in a very professional way, everybody was inredibly helpful, positive and supportive. Seeing giraffes using the feeders that our team have built made us feel really good as money and our time went to support such a good cause. Thank you Mark and your BITE team for such a great day!
