Wildlife Outreach Programs
Where we bring the wildlife to you.
Our Wildlife outreach programs consist of nine animals which include the following: A Siberian Lynx, Scarlet Macaw, Barred Owl, 2′ American Alligator, Rose-Hair Tarantula, Gila Monster, Kinkajou, Ringtail Lemur and an 8′ Albino Burmese Python.
The animals are presented to the group one at a time. We teach the students about each animal on their grade level and then allow members of the audience to come up and help us handle the animals. Photos can also be taken with the animals. The Program is exciting, humorous and very educational. The program usually lasts about 1 hour.
This isn’t some drive thru wildlife safari this is an adventure that your kids will never forget.
Our director Mark McCarthy is performing our programs. Mark has over 30 years of experience working with animals and running wildlife programs. His love for the animals and his natural teaching ability makes him a favorite with the children of South Florida. His concern for the safety of the audience and the animals are always Mark’s top priorities. His safety record is flawless.
