Primary School Animal Workshops
Zoo2U's core values are to Interact, Educate and Inspire with their fantastic array of wonderful animals. Therefore visiting schools and educating through their animal workshops is their true passion. Watch as Meerkats, Owls, Parrots, Chameleons, Kookaburras, Tortoises and more bring the curriculum to life!

Special Needs Schools
For children and adults with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), Zoo2U offer a fantastic opportunity for animal therapy sessions with our exotic animals. A really popular topic is ‘textures’ and with the great variety of reptiles, birds and mammals that can all be touched and stroked, Zoo2U can carry out a fur, feather and scales session.
Zoo2U have seen firsthand what an amazing effect animal’s have on these remarkable individuals. If you are lucky enough to work with these children or adults and have never experienced ‘animal therapy’ then please get in contact and see with your own eyes. It’s a very humbling experience.
Zoo2U are proud of the fantastic feedback they have received. To see just one great example of how the children can interact and be inspired see below:

Zoo2U visited students with a selection of animals across a number of planned visits to teach on husbandry aspects and legalities within the captive exotic animal industry. These were presented in lectures and hands on sessions to students. The interactive experience proved to be invaluable to students and lecturers alike.
