Learn all about the wildlife you can find in your playground, gardens and on the way to school and explore the different ways you can protect it. We’ll even help you make some changes to your school grounds to make them better for wildlife!
Our experts will support you every step of the way, delivering a teacher kickstarter session, whole school assembly, workshops for each participating class in school, virtually and in the zoo and providing all the resources you need to take learning across the curriculum.
The project takes place across a school term, with dates selected to meet your timetable as far as possible.
Our conservation education officers will visit you in school to deliver a training session for participating teachers and a school assembly so that everyone knows what to expect.
Our experts will join you online to deliver a virtual workshop to each participating class.
We’ll visit school again to deliver workshops for each class, help prepare for the zoo visit and get you out into your outside spaces.
The project culminates in a visit to the zoo to see some of our UK wildlife demonstration spaces, and everything else the zoo has to offer and get some more input from our experts. And we’ll leave you with all the resources you need to follow up from this visit in class.
A fully virtual version of this project can also be delivered. A virtual project still includes all of the resources and ongoing support, as well as sessions one to three, all delivered virtually via video link. It can be a great way to connect with us if you are outside of our catchment area or if visits are restricted.
The project is priced based on the number of classes that participate. Prices include all workshops led by zoo staff, resources and zoo admission for pupils and adults at standard supervising ratios. Any transport costs to get to the zoo are not included. Other discounts, such as memberships or free visit tickets, cannot be applied.
