Rachael covers: Yorkshire & Lincolnshire, including Scunthorpe, Grimsby, Hull, Beverley, Lincoln, Doncaster, Rotherham, York & Selby
Rachael and her animals visit schools, nurseries, parties, care homes and events. Rachael has a degree in Conservation and has been running workshops in schools for over ten years, previous to Lion Learners working with children to encourage wildlife within the school grounds. She has been with Lion Learners since 2012, and loves introducing young and old alike to her wonderful animals.
Rachael says about working with her animals: ‘Of course, I can’t admit to having a favourite animal, but I do love minibeasts; they have amazing life cycles and adaptations. Invertebrates are important pollinators, they are a vital source of food for animals higher up in the food chain, and even play a role in medicine, so it’s great for people to experience some of these magnificent creatures close up, and realise that they’re not so creepy after all! Of course, I love giving people the opportunity to meet and learn about my furry and scaly friends just as much!’.

Although he looks scary and strange, Stanley is harmless. We love his long front legs, and like to watch the way he stretches them out to feel around.Download Factsheet
We love how he does everything so, so slowly. Even when he sticks his eyes out to have a good look at us, he unfurls them very slowly.Download Factsheet
Alice feels tickly walking on your hand! It is really nice to watch her legs moving along just a few legs at a time—they move in waves!Download Factsheet

We have had Alfie since he was a tiny baby (nymph) and he is now a grown-up. It has taken about a year and a half for him to grow up. Now that he is a grown up, he has wings, but don’t worry, he doesn’t really fly properly!Download Factsheet
Mindy is a lovely lady. She is kind and gentle with everyone. She loves to be outside on a warm day and can take surprisingly good leaps in to the air when she sees a fly buzz by!Download Factsheet
