Crocodiles in the Classroom!
Outreach visits are available for school and other educational groups. We regret that we cannot cover fetes, fairs and other community events.
An outreach visit to a school is a fantastic way to bring learning to life. Seeing these incredible animals up close and outside of the context of the zoo enables you to appreciate the beauty in their form, and the remarkable adaptations these animals have. In most cases, Outreach events are hands-on, so audiences can touch many of the animals.
Keep in mind that although we usually draw a large crowd, the outreach visits are Educational visits, and not simply for entertainment. The animals we bring along are all accustomed to being handled and transported to such events. However, for various reasons we may judge that an animal on the day is not suitable for handling. Our priority is for the animals’ well-being.
For the same reason we restrict these visits to under 35 miles from the zoo, and under 3 hours’ duration. This minimises the time that each animal will be away from its enclosure.
The cost of an outreach visit will depend on the location and duration of the event, so please contact our Head of Education to enquire or to book your Outreach Event:
