We reopened our gates on Monday 12th April and we’re so excited to welcome you all back.
We will continue to follow the latest government guidance to keep all of our visitors safe. Please check the advice of your local authority on school trips before booking your visit.
Our education programmes are an important part of our mission of PREVENTING EXTINCTION. They inspire people to care about and, more importantly, take action for the natural world.
We work with all key stages from EYFS to university level and everything in between. We can even help support teachers to organise staff training, inset days and further support around conservation curriculum and planning.
Our education team also support community and uniformed groups looking to learn new conservation skills to help protect wildlife with us.
