A visit to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary gives children a chance to encounter our animals outside the classroom.

What to expect from an Educational visit to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary

During a visit to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary children will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about how a sanctuary operates and have the chance to interact with the animals whilst learning how best to consider their welfare. This experience can provide life lessons that we believe are vital to the future of UK wildlife. Visits range from 1 - 3 hours in the afternoon and are tailor made to suit you and your class/requirements.

What is included?

An education visit to Woodlands includes:

  • A presentation about our sanctuary and residents allowing children to ask any questions they may have.
  • An opportunity to take part in hands-on activities such as goat/chicken feeding, pony grooming and more.
  • A Woodlands Animal Sanctuary pack containing information about our sanctuary, how to save hedgehogs and other wildlife alongside an activity sheet based around the visit.
