Educational visits
for primary and junior schools

As well as being a leading visitor attraction, with an enviable site location that is set in stunning open parkland, we’re also an award-winning conservation and education facility. This means we’re in a unique position to teach our guests about conservation and the natural world making us an ideal destination for an educational school visit.

Our Keeper Presentations (Wildlife Events) are fun and informative – geared to encourage participation and learning. There are nine Wildlife Events daily (seven days a week) – for full details and times please see the 'Wildlife Events' Link on our website.

Learning is further promoted through attractive, easy-to-read signs situated around the Park - many geared especially for children.

Tara Hayter, our Head Keeper & Education Officer, is actively involved with schools on the Island. During our ‘out of season’ months Tara has become increasingly involved with educational outreach presentations to school groups - these are fun, interactive outings where Tara is accompanied by members of our animal and insect collection!
