What we believe to be the most hands-on and interactive approach to conservation education anywhere in the world. The ultimate all day wildlife experience!
Most of this experience revolves around working very closely with many of our larger and more dangerous animals. These activities are vitally important, fun and enriching for these animals. This is something that the average zoo visitor would never get the chance to see or experience.
