Virtual Zoo2U Animal Encounters Available Now
Due to the government preventing us from returning to outreach or opening our indoor Discovery Centre to visitors, we are now able to offer our sessions in a virtual capacity where the children can still benefit from an animal encounter to support their learning. Furthermore because we control the environment we can include animals which are not suitable for all venues such as meerkats.

Animal Party Format
The Virtual Animal Party starts with an introduction to us and the animals. Each session provides an encounter with the animals which is tailored to the ages of party attendees, whether small children, adults or the elderly. The sessions involve some fun, interesting facts about each animal. Each participant will also have an opportunity to ask any questions and engage in a fun interactive session.
For those of you who are have bookings coming up, we can’t fulfil these at present until the government tell us otherwise. Therefore, we would also ask you to consider rescheduling.
Over the past 3 months we have lost our entire source of income and unlike many businesses our costs have not really changed, due to animal welfare standards needing to be met. So far we’ve managed to struggle through with some government help and the generosity of the public.
