    Hi everyone!
    I'm studying animal behaviour and welfare and am now in my final year. I'm about to start my dissertation but am struggling on making a specific topic out of my areas of interest! I am required to do a survey, so possibly a study on public perceptions or opinions? My areas of interest are the exotic pet trade, zoo animals, primates (as pets) and social media influencing pet choice. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you!

    I worked in Cambodia with a girl who was studying sun bear behaviour in animals with a physical disability (such as missing toes, missing paws, loss of vision) which I thought was pretty interesting!

    Defiantly go for something you will enjoy. Although I’m younger than a uni student I know several people who have been to uni or have done similar things at A level. It’ll make it much easier if you already know a lot about the topic, but my best advice is to just crack on with it and get it done!

    Best of luck!
