Home / About us


Lion Learners is the brainchild of husband and wife, David & Liona Woricker. A teacher and conservationist respectively, who wanted to combine their passion for education and wildlife. Because what better way to learn about animals than to actually meet them?

In 2009, David and Liona started bringing their fun and unique animal handling experiences to schools, nurseries, clubs and parties. It was an instant success. Children loved meeting the animals, teachers loved the educational enrichment, and parents loved the interaction.

Soon the venture expanded into a family of presenters running experiences across East England, East Midlands and Yorkshire & Humberside. Meanwhile, David and Liona developed South Angle Farm , an educational farm park in Cambridgeshire that also serves as the training hub for Lion Learners.


All Lion Learners presenters are highly trained, with a range of animal, environmental and teaching qualifications. We pride ourselves on our excellent reputation, top quality service and a commitment to animal welfare and education. The animals are at the heart of everything we do, and all animals live with their presenter to ensure they get the best possible care.
