HOME SCHOOLING / LEARNING SESSIONS

Recognising a growing increase in Home schooling / Learning requests we thought we'd bring in a tailor made offering that combines our popular Reptile Experiences with our Educational Presentations. Each topic can be adapted to cater for children from the Early Years, Primary and Secondary Schools to Further and Higher Education levels. 

Understanding the nature and features of reptiles, insects and arachnids is imperative to our line of work, sharing this information enables others to make informed decisions about the treatment of these animals in the wild and in captivity.
