Our "Animal Encounter" workshops allow students to interact with a selection of both common and exotic species; ranging from mammals to reptiles, invertebrates to amphibians*.                                                                                                * Restricted availability


All our animals are fully handleable, and students are encouraged to observe, touch and handle each of the animals present whilst being given lots of interesting facts about each creature; such as adaptations, habitat and survival skills.


Our extended encounters workshops include "animal info" worksheets (or colouring sheets if prefered), "make and do" craft activities, interactive "knowledge-test" games, story-time and additional handling/welfare activities; such as participating in the rabbit "space check" test and hand feeding opportunities.
