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'.

Watch the bearded dragons munch their wriggly lunch; blue tongue lizards and super-cute tortoises on laps; exotic breed guinea pigs to groom and feed; create a mini zoo park for the mice; weird and wonderful turtles, and even performing pups with a dog safety message!
