Hands-on animals & science

In Care/Nursing Homes our Animal Therapy sessions are a great activity for elderly residents whether physical or online

The benefits of Animal Therapy are well documented. Simple interactions such stroking is beneficial to people of all ages.

Different animals bring different textures and personalities to the session.

A mixture of cute fluffy animals and silky smooth reptiles provide a great experience that will stay with your residents long after we leave. We will only bring Tarantulas or Cockroaches if you request them.

Animal Therapy is the ideal way for residents who may be less mobile to interact with animals and benefit from a new and unique experience.

Wild Science® is the only provider in the UK to offer Bed-Bound Tours for residents who are restricted to their beds. Let us brighten their day too.

The pandemic has affected how care homes operate; not just in the UK, but across the world. Our online sessions provide a great opportunity to interact with someone outside the home whilst learning about new and exotic animals. It’s a great experience for the resident and the carers too
