Zoo Explorers at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo (5-7 year olds)

 

Zoo Explorers is a fantastic, exciting one day course for children aged 5-7 who are ready to explore the Zoo and learn more! The course is specially designed to ensure children get to explore, investigate and enjoy the Zoo. Supported by our Learning team, children will have the opportunity to get up close with a selection of animals as well as make new friends and engage in exciting animal themed activities.

 

This will include learning about the different habitats animals live and some basic animal classification. The course also includes what a zoo keeper does on a daily basis and a behind the scenes look at how they do their jobs. They’ll also have the chance to muck out an enclosure to get a feel for what it’s like actually working at the zoo and meet some of our smaller animals face to face, such as a snake and our goats.  Children will be accompanied behind the scenes on enclosures to learn about how we look after our animals, meet members of the team and be immersed in zoo life.

 

We are pleased to reopen bookings for Zoo Explorers from August 2020 onwards. Please note, we have put additional safety measures in place to ensure we are following government guidelines which will be communicated to you upon booking. For more information, please contact zooacademywz@zsl.org
