Belfast Zoo.

Extracts from this document...


English Task 1 Belfast Zoo Schools are encouraged to make full use of their visit by contacting the zoo's education officer who will arrange both guided tours and education packs. I find this leaflet attractive to look at for a number of reasons. At first glance it is well designed; an A4 sheet of paper folded to produce separate 'pages' with each giving concise information about the zoo.
