More Info

Animal experiences are events or activities where people can interact with and learn about different types of animals in a hands-on and educational setting.

These are typically designed to provide a fun and engaging way for people of all ages to learn about different animals, their behaviour and their habitats.

Animal experience days can vary in terms of the types of animals involved and the activities that are offered.

Some may involve visiting a wildlife sanctuary or zoo where visitors can learn about animals in their natural habitats, while others may offer interactive experiences such as feeding or petting animals.

Some experiences may focus on specific types of animals, such as birds of prey, marine animals, or exotic animals, while others may offer a more general introduction to a variety of animals.

Overall, there are animal experiences near me and you that provide an opportunity for people to learn about and appreciate different animals, while also enjoying a fun and memorable experience.

There are so many choices for animal places to visit, from sanctuary visits to famous landmarks such as Whispsnade Zoo, ZSL London Zoo and even Welsh Mountain Zoo.

Hoo Zoo – Telford Exotic Zoo Animals

One of the most popular animal experiences we have at WonderDays is a very family friendly trip to the zoo, with Hoo Zoo one of our top selling animal attractions.

The Telford zoo and ‘dinosaur park’ offers a variety of options to get up close and personal with a variety of different animals.

Our favourites include:

Meerkat Experience sessions, with the chance to feed, play with and stroke these cute and cheeky animals

Junior Half Day Zoo Keeper Experience

Carnivore Combo Experience, featuring four top predators

Our carnivores at Hoo Zoo are rather smaller than those at some of the various big cat sanctuaries here in the UK.

Such sanctuaries provide a home for big cats that have been rescued from the exotic pet trade or other dangerous situations and they work to promote conservation and education about these magnificent animals.

Hoo Zoo offers similar conservation and protection across a wide range of different exotic zoo animals.

Animal Experiences Near Me

When asking which ones are the best animal places near me, think about whether you want to enjoy meeting exotic zoo animals, enjoy falconry or even take part in a zoo keeper experience looking after all types of creatures.

Falconry is an ancient art that involves using trained birds of prey to hunt for game. In a falconry experience, participants may learn about the history of falconry, the different types of birds of prey, and the techniques used to train and handle them.

During a falconry experience, participants may have the opportunity to hold and fly a trained bird of prey, and watch as it performs aerial manoeuvres and returns to the handler's glove. Some falconry experiences may also include a demonstration of the bird's hunting abilities, where the bird may catch and retrieve a piece of prey, such as a rabbit or a quail.

Meerkat Experience Near Me

A meerkat experience or more general zoo keeper experience can vary depending on the specific program and facility.

However, generally, these experiences offer a behind-the-scenes look at the daily operations and care of animals in a zoo or wildlife park.

During a meerkat experience, participants will have the opportunity to meet and interact with meerkats up close, observe their behaviour, learn about their diet and habitat and possibly even help with feeding or enrichment activities.

A zoo keeper experience, on the other hand, may involve shadowing a professional zookeeper as they go about their daily duties such as feeding and caring for animals, cleaning enclosures, providing enrichment activities, and monitoring animal health and behaviour.

Both experiences may also involve educational sessions where participants can learn about the conservation efforts of the facility and the importance of protecting and preserving wildlife.

These experiences are typically guided by trained professionals and follow strict safety protocols to ensure the well-being of both the participants and the animals.
