Live Animal Presentations for Schools and Groups

Available all year Get brochure

Our outreach presentations are designed to make the natural environment accessible to groups that are unable to take advantage of our Field Experiences. These presentations are unique because of the use of live native wildlife. Animals such as the Great Horned Owl, Red-Tailed Hawk, Gopher Tortoise, Indigo Snake, American Alligator and others are brought to the program location. The use of live animals allows the audience a wonderful opportunity to learn about and experience the natural history of south Florida. Outreach presentations are available for groups of all ages, and can be adapted to fit the needs or the curriculum of each individual group.

Outreach Presentations can be made at schools, meeting places, local parks, or other locations of your choice. These presentations are ideally suited for school classes, scout troops, clubs, community and adult organizations, and summer camps. For more information, call our office at 772-286-6200.

The programs focus on and explore a variety of topics which include: threatened and endangered species; ecology and ecosystems; habitat and habitat destruction; problems caused by the introduction of exotic species; food chains and food webs; urban wildlife; and other related subjects.
