In-School Educational Workshops + Events

School and EC Visits

In the words of David Attenborough:

"Bringing nature into the classroom can kindle a fascination and passion for the diversity of life on earth and can motivate a sense of responsibility to safeguard it."

From pet care workshops through to animal career days for senior secondary, we tailor the experience to your topic or area of interest. Popular themes include animal diversity and animal groups, animal art classes, and responsible petkeeping. All our workshops have a high level of student involvement, and clear learning outcomes. With both popular pets and exotic animals, students love learning with us.

Curriculum friendly, interactive, and fun!


Holiday Programmes

If you run your own holiday program, we can come to you!

As well as running our own short workshops over most school holidays, we visit many community based holiday programmes.



Entertainment for Functions and Events

From family gatherings through to corporate fun days, store openings, and community events, we provide a fascinating animal display, and the opportunity for visitors to your event to get up close with an amazing range of weird and wonderful creatures.

Our animals have appeared on Good Morning, Breakfast, The Cafe, Chinese Television and in print and film advertising. Please contact us for more information.
