Animal Visits for Higher Education

Our interactive sessions can help support a number of topics in higher animal studies.

We can provide fun, educational sessions to your students, whether you would like an aid in teaching or as a team-building exercise.

Virtual Sessions are also available for those looking for a shorter, educational talk over Zoom with 2 of our professional former-zookeepers.

Our talks can be on a variety of subjects, including:

  • Animal Health, Husbandry and Welfare - Learn from our years of experience what to look out for and how to ensure the highest levels of health, husbandry and welfare in the collections you work with.
  • Exotic Mammals and Growing Popularity - See how companion animals are not always enough for today’s keepers. See how these exotic mammals are not as easy as people make out but how with experience and knowledge they can make rewarding companions.
  • Feeding and Nutrition - Learn how important feeding plans are in working with exhibition animals. See how the best possible nutrition is key to a happy healthy animal.
  • Keeping Invertebrates - See how the world of invertebrates is just as popular as the others. How invertebrate husbandry has evolved and how these amazing animals are a thrill to work with.
  • Animal Training - Learn from our head trainer how simple and advanced training behaviours help with everyday animal keeping. Learn how diet plans help to keep animals focused and engaged.
  • Ethical Breeding - Learn how breeding should be carried out and how some breeding for human needs or desires can lead to problems for the animal.
  • Falconry Basics - See how the world of falconry works. Learn the basics to start and methods and theories behind working with amazing birds of prey.
  • Reptile Husbandry - Learn the key things needed for responsible reptile husbandry, see how the hobby has evolved and how advancing husbandry methods lead to happy healthier animals.
  • The Life of an Animal Experience Company - Get a glimpse into our lives and what it’s like to run an experience company, how we started and what we did before.
  • Fully licensed, insured and DBS checked.

    WOW These guys visited our school yesterday for our summer fair and I can honestly say this was absolutely brilliant. They had an amazing selection of diffrent animals and the children really enjoyed the up close interaction. The team gave all the kids lots of time to hold the snakes, ferrets, pygmy hedgehogs, fancy mice and their two gorgeous brother and sister barn owls (the stars of the show for me)! Lots of information and facts for children and parents. Brilliant day and a massive thank you for coming.

    We are a children’s day nursery and today Exotic Explorers came to visit us with their amazing animals. We did not really know what to expect but their visit far surpassed our expectations and they were so professional. They brought owls, snakes, bearded dragons and rabbits and took time to explain about the animals to our children and allowed them to touch them. The owl even flew in our nursery. We are definitely going to make this a regular visit. Thank you so much.

    A huge thank you to Ben and Puri for an amazing day! All the children and adults had the best time. Ben and Puri are amazing with the children and it was a great educational and fun experience. The animals are beautiful and so well loved. I would highly recommend Exotic Explorers. Wish we could do this all over again.
