We Bring the Zoo to You – Live Learning at Your School!
ZooVentures brings interactive workshops to your Auckland school with an amazing range of exotic creatures and pets, covering many of the 'living world' curriculum topics, as well as providing inspiration for art and creative writing plus animal careers workshops for seniors.
We deliver structured learning with high educational value.
Workshops are facilitated by a zoology graduate with a passion for inspiring children about animals and the environment.
One teacher describes it as 'like a zoo trip, but more hands-on and no travel to organise'.
Choose from workshop topics: animal habitats, animal diversity, endangered animals, animals and the environment, pets and petcare, life cycles, food chains, creative writing; or we tailor sessions to your theme or study topic, all featuring our extensive collection of animals. We can also just do a bit of everything and include as many animals as possible!
There is a high level of interaction throughout; students have huge lizards on their laps, see chinchillas rolling in a dustbath, hold rare tortoises, build leopard gecko habitats and many more exciting and engaging experiences.
In addition to learning about the animals themselves, we reinforce important values around kindness, respect, and empathy towards all living things, and a responsible attitude towards the environment.
At just $195 + GST per hour workshop (minimum 3) for hands-on learning and even less for a 'look and learn' option this is great value, and we come to you!
Our animal line-up includes:
- Giant stick insects (in season)
- Bearded dragon lizards
- Blue tongue lizards
- Water dragon
- Leopard geckos
- Snake-necked turtles
- Red-eared terrapins
- Herman's tortoises
- Sea stars
- Green tree frogs
- Chinese and Japanese fire bellied newts
- Rock pool creatures
- Rose cockatoo
- Guinea pigs – exotic breeds
- Chinchilla squirrels
- Pomeranian X Japanese Spitz dogs.
