Socially distanced school visits

Children will have the chance to view animal behaviour, including movement and feeding, in their classrooms or school hall.

  • Social distancing maintained at all times
  • All equipment disinfected between visits
  • Great way to see animals up close without risk

What to expect

Fun, excitement and amazing animal antics! Our ethical animal experiences teach children so much about the natural world, in a safe, no risk way.

Meet 8-10 animals per visit

Your classroom will be taken over by rapturous reptiles, marvellous mammals and creepy crawly critters! The animals will be safely housed in travel tanks and pens at the front of the room and come out one by one to meet the class. From snakes slithering across the floor to hedgehogs hoovering up mealworms, children will delight in watching and learning about animal behaviour. In a safe, socially distanced way.

Rigorous safety procedures

All our presenters are trained in Covid-19 disease control and have robust guidelines in place to prevent transmission and keep you and your pupils safe. You can expect the highest standards of care and thorough risk assessments.
