Notice reference #: 1HAJ44

ZooVentures brings interactive workshops to your Auckland school (or learning centre) 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. Zoom version also available everywhere.

We deliver structured learning with high educational value.

Workshops are facilitated by a zoology graduate with a passion for inspiring students 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 and engagement 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.

Please enquire for pricing. This is a very cost-effective option compared to offsite trips and is even better value when we have 3 or more classes participate.

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 
  • Weta
