HOW TO CONTACT US
Please email email@example.com and a member of the team will get back to you as quickly as possible. Please be patient when waiting for replies, we have over 150 animals whos care is our number 1 priority!
Please see our 'News & Updates' section for ways to support us with our work, for latest Covid-19 and Avian Influenza restrictions and how your bookings made be effected.
One of our most rewarding and important jobs is educating people about wildlife and the animals that we care for. For us this starts with children, as we believe the child who grows up loving nature and wanting to save it, will become an adult who takes action.
There is nothing better than seeing the look on a child's face when they interact with our birds of prey and the other species that we care for here. We hope that this guided interaction will inspire them to become the conservationists and animal lovers of the future.
Our educational talks are very hands on as we believe this is the best way for anyone to learn and retain knowledge. We cater for different ages, abilities and group sizes. As well as being able to bring a team of birds to your venue, you can also visit us at our centre in Congresbury where our flying arena can cater for 400 people.
Just some of the places we visit are schools, colleges, universities, nurseries, playgroups, corporate events, support groups, hospices, church groups, and organised groups.
Educational talks start from £100. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for prices and availability.
Off Site Educational Talks
Did you know our team can visit you?! Our talks are usually 1 hour long and we will bring four different species of birds of prey but we can run longer or shorter sessions if requested. During our talks we will cover a range of subjects such as nocturnal animals, predator/prey relationships, adaptations, habitats, and life cycles. We can also tie in with any subjects you are currently studying. Our outreach team will also bring along additional teaching aids that the children can touch and pass around to make for a more interactive experience. Sessions can take place inside or outside and we can provide risk assessments upon request. We are fully licensed and insured.
If you would like to include a handling session for the students (8yrs+), we can include a 30-minute handling of the birds for up to 10 students at a time when booking an educational talk.
