Teaching Talons (Animal Ambassadors)

Educational animal encounters run by experienced zoo keepers. We bring our animal team and professional presenters to your school or venue and provide interactive, unforgettable talks and workshops on the topic of your choice. We can cater from 45 minute sessions up to half day and full day workshops. Subjects can be tailor made and include nocturnal animals, dinosaurs, rainforest animals, mini beasts, a career with animals and more! Sessions for children over 5 can also include animal handling at no extra cost. If you’re a teacher looking for an inspiring, fun presentation or workshop, look no further!

We suit all age ranges, from pre-school right up to college.
