Kristan and her animals visit schools, nurseries, parties, care homes and events.  Kristan is an experienced primary school teacher and long time animal lover; she joined the team in 2013 so she could combine her love for animals with her passion for education.  Kristan has animals from all over the world that she loves to share with others, young or old, for an experience you will not forget.

Kristan says: “I am lucky to live and work with an amazing team of animals.  They never fail to amaze everyone with their calm friendly attitude.  My lovely rabbits are great confidence givers that   encourage people to have a go at handling more unusual and exotic creatures.”
