Choosing animals for events in Nurseries, Schools, Children’s Parties and Care Homes such as educational sessions, exhibitions or Animal Therapy is a common practice, but it’s important to prioritise animal welfare in the process. This means that while you can choose animals for a session, we cannot guarantee any particular animal, as their health and well-being should always be the top priority.

A mobile zoo is a type of zoo that travels from place to place, rather than being a fixed location. The mobile zoo typically brings a variety of animals to events, schools, parties, care homes or other locations for people to see and interact with.

Mobile zoos can be a way for people to learn about different types of animals and their habitats, as well as to experience the joy of seeing and touching the animals up close. They can also provide educational programs and presentations, such as wildlife conservation or animal behaviour topics.

Mobile zoos can vary in size and the types of animals they bring, but typically include smaller animals like reptiles/Amphibians, small mammals and invertebrates.

It’s important to note that mobile zoos, like any other facility that houses animals, should prioritise the welfare of their animals. Proper care, nutrition, and living conditions should be provided for the animals, and they should only be handled by trained professionals who prioritise the animals’ safety and well-being.

Yes, Wild Science bring mini-beasts to your nursery or school for educational purposes (and care homes when requested). Wild Science can bring a range of small invertebrate animals such as insects, spiders, and snails to schools or nurseries to teach children about nature and biology.

These educational programs can be a great way for children to learn about the importance of these small creatures in our ecosystem, their behaviour, life cycles, and adaptations. They can also help children develop an appreciation for nature and promote environmental conservation.

However, it’s important to ensure that the animals are treated with respect and care. They should be handled by trained professionals who prioritise the animals’ safety and well-being. Additionally, children should be taught how to handle the animals gently and respectfully, and the animals should be returned to their enclosure as soon as the educational program is finished.

It’s also common to obtain permission from parents or guardians before bringing live animals into the classroom, and to make sure that any children with allergies or sensitivities are not exposed to the animals.

Yes; however, while it is possible to hire animals for a children’s party, there are several important considerations to keep in mind when making this decision. Here are some potential benefits of hiring animals for a children’s party:

  1. Educational value: Live animals can provide a unique and engaging way for children to learn about different types of animals and their habitats. Children can learn about the animals’ behavior, life cycles, and adaptations, which can promote a greater appreciation for nature and environmental conservation.

  2. Entertainment: Live animals can provide a fun and memorable experience for children at a party. Children may enjoy interacting with the animals, taking pictures with them, and learning about their unique qualities.

  3. Experiential learning: Live animals can provide a hands-on learning experience for children, which can be especially beneficial for children who learn best through experiential learning. Children can observe the animals’ behavior, touch their skin or fur, and listen to the sounds they make.

  4. Health benefits: Studies have shown that interactions with animals can have positive health benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety and promoting social connections. Having animals at a children’s party can provide a positive and calming environment for children to interact with animals and each other.

However, it’s important to ensure that the animals are treated with respect and care and that their welfare is prioritised. Working with a reputable and licensed animal handler who can provide proper care, nutrition, and living conditions for the animals is essential. Additionally, children should be supervised and taught how to handle the animals gently and respectfully.

Wild Science Ltd is a company that provides interactive educational programs and animal encounters for children. Their demonstrations and programs include a wide variety of activities that are designed to engage and educate children about science and the natural world. Some examples of their demonstrations include:

  1. Bug and insect displays: Children can learn about different types of insects, their life cycles, and their habitats. They can also observe the insects up close and learn about their unique adaptations.

  2. Animal encounters: Children can meet and interact with a variety of animals, including mammals, reptiles/amphibians and invertebrates. They can learn about the animals’ behaviour, diet, and habitat, and can even touch or hold some of the animals under close supervision.

  3. Science shows: These interactive shows feature exciting science demonstrations and experiments that are designed to engage and educate children about science concepts such as chemical reactions, physics, and palaeontology.

The benefits of Wild Science Ltd’s programs and demonstrations are many. They provide a fun and engaging way for children to learn about science and the natural world, and can help to foster a lifelong interest in science and learning.
