Educational Presentations primarily in the South West ........... (from £99 - £349)


Children have an amazing capacity to learn and it can be challenging to keep them engaged. We can bring Darwinian Theory, Animal Classification and many other animal related topics to life. Our aim is to ensure the children have an enjoyable and memorable experience whilst soaking up lots of information and interesting facts.

The introduction or even the thought of seeing some weird and wonderful animals is enough to generate a great sense of excitement and intrigue.

Our list of animals include boa constrictors, giant African millepedes and snails, tarantulas, scorpions, Madagascan hissing cockroaches, stick insects and Teddy the Goldendoubledoodle, honestly I'm not joking.

We will chose the most appropriate animals for each presentation, as it's not practical to bring every creature every time. In selecting we are mindful that SEND children tend to prefer animals they can handle whilst others may find creatures that are visually interesting but are not suitable for handling just as much fun.

Presentations are designed to take place in your school and will vary from a minimum of 45 minutes to 1 hour for a single session, depending on your timetable, or half / full days if you have more you'd like to cover. 

You can choose from some of the examples below or call us to discuss the full range of options or create something that is tailored specially for you.

"We had an unusual request and asked Russ to present to our German language group so that they could practice animal related adjectives."

With a similar approach to SEND both Nursery and Early Years need a very hands on approach.
Using stories based on real life treks in the Amazon and Madagascar we encourage the children to use actions and words to make it a very interactive session.

"Tales of Russ and his rainforest adventure and amazon trek enthralled the children, we look forward to seeing him again to hear more."

Normally organised through the school SENDCo we have developed a number of sensory workshops  specifically for mentally and socially disadvantaged children and adults, using a very hands on approach with extremely 'user friendly', tactile animals.

"You could hear a pin drop with children who usually struggle to keep focussed - it was magical."
"Even Harry behaved :-) He could not keep his eyes off you and the animals. The children all loved Millie the Millipede and now want one for a class pet."
"Lots of fun and laughter, what a great morning with Russ and the animals."
