Zoo Education


  • UPDATE: We are taking bookings for winter and spring terms and also now offer Croc Zoo Zoom visits and lessons. Get in touch to discuss and book.


Crocodiles of the World is a conservation and education centre. Its aim is to inform and educate adults & children about animals and conservation. We want to evoke a sense of wonder about nature and inspire our visitors to be excited about this amazing planet and the wildlife and wilderness that we share it with, and that is so integral to our sense of well-being, and so essential to protect.


Our award-winning zoo is also the holder of the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom (see below), so your visit is in great hands.

What To Expect From Your Visit


You want a school trip to be fun and exciting for the children (and the teachers!), to be memorable, and to reinforce the school curriculum. That’s what we aim to provide here at Crocodiles of the World!


We are the UKs only crocodile zoo. Therefore, you will see the largest collection of crocodiles and alligators in the UK, and one of the most significant collections in the world.


We can show the children how crocodiles differ from alligators; that these animals are not ‘prehistoric’ nor ‘unchanged’ from the time of dinosaurs; how rapidly they can move when they need to; why they stay so still; how little they actually eat; what ‘cold-blooded’ really means…All these behaviours and aspects of their physiology are explained within the context of classification, metabolism, adaptations, habitats, diet, and other important areas of the school curriculum. We can also cover conservation, climate change impacts, and sustainability – crocodilians are the ideal animals to illustrate these topics.


Because we know these animals so well, we can convey the information in a fun and entertaining way as well as answer any questions that the children or teachers may have.


We are fortunate in having such a collection of animals to use as our classroom here at Crocodiles of the World.


Our Learning Sessions and Workshops are held in our recently upgraded Education Room. This room is complete with our 84-inch Smart Screen, which makes presentations even more fun and interactive than ever.


During your stay, there are also the daily talks and feeding demonstrations (although covid restrictions may impact some of these) within the zoo, so the children will get to experience these, guided by one of our Education Team who will be able to answer any of your questions.


You will:

  • Have a guided tour of the zoo, depending on group numbers
  • Have a tailor-made workshop to reinforce classroom lessons
  • Have plenty of photo opportunities
  • Have a fun, entertaining, but informative visit
  • Enjoy the expertise of our friendly staff
