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. The colours used are earthy, natural tones, which suggest to the reader jungle habitats and natural settings - a suggestion enhanced by the front page photograph of a majestic tiger. ...read more.

There is also the opportunity to play your part in the zoo, by adopting an animal - and who wouldn't want to adopt on of the adorable baby animals shown. Is this a coincidence? I think not. The pace and tome of this leaflet is fast, fun, immediate and highly personal, leading you around the main attractions of the zoo, whetting your appetite to experience it fully.
