Team building activities that will make a difference

Great organisations are always looking for opportunities to support employee engagement, as well as supporting their local community. But finding innovative ways to support both is unusual. 

Well, team building events at Dartmoor Zoo offer a unique opportunity for businesses to do just that! And we’ve been supporting businesses to support team cohesion whilst they’ve been supporting us and the work we do, too. 

Here’s how. 

Engaging Activities That Make a Real Impact

When you choose Dartmoor Zoo for your team building day, you’re investing in a shared experience for your people that will turn strangers into colleagues, and colleagues into friends! No stuffy conference space or meeting room, and not a PowerPoint in sight. Just a group of people getting to work and solving problems together, all whilst supporting the great work our zookeepers are doing for our resident animals. 

Just some of our team building activities include: 

Getting in Touch with Nature: This isn’t just about enjoying the great outdoors; it’s about solving problems together. Our planting activities require teamwork and creativity, allowing your team to connect with nature and each other, fostering a sense of accomplishment and shared purpose – all whilst supporting the landscaping efforts of our teams. 

Let’s Talk Fences: Communication is key, and what better way to break down barriers than by building and renovating fences together? This hands-on activity is perfect for opening up dialogue and encouraging collaborative problem-solving, all while contributing to the safety and wellbeing of our zoo residents. A fantastic team building activity that also provides a long-lasting benefit for the zoo. 

Caged In: Join forces with our maintenance team and get involved in vital enclosure repairs and renovations. This activity gives your team a chance to work closely on important projects and highlights the impact of collective effort in maintaining a safe environment for our animals.

Team Building with BITE: Ready for a challenge? This activity will test your team’s ability to work under pressure while handling tasks that are critical to our daily operations. It’s exciting, it’s different, and it’s a surefire way to bring your team together – all whilst supporting the fantastic work our zookeepers get up to each day!

Animal Enrichment Making: From crafting hammocks to constructing feeders for birds, these activities allow your team to contribute directly to the health and happiness of our animals. It’s a wonderful way to engage creatively and see the immediate benefits of your teamwork and ensure the happiness and engagement of our resident animals, too!

Meet the Tiger: Imagine the thrill of meeting one of our magnificent tigers up close with up to ten of your colleagues. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that educates and inspires awe and respect for nature’s marvels.
