Set in a unique location, Dartmoor Zoo offers a wide range of workshops and sessions designed to inspire students to learn about animal welfare, conservation and biodiversity. With a large selection of exotic and native species there is plenty of opportunity to get close to and learn about global and native biodiversity in a fun and engaging way.

Delivered by our team of enthusiastic professionals the sessions are designed around the national curriculum and support cross curriculum delivery.

From EYFS to higher education there is a session for all ages and abilities.
