At Tropical Wings Zoo we aim to bring learning to life! We wish to enrich the learning experience of our school visitors whilst inspiring them about the natural world. It is our objective to provide education for all, which is why in 2017 our Discovery Sessions can be booked by schools at no extra cost to the normal school admission fees.

Our passionate Education and Learning Team are dedicated to delivering exciting learning objectives to children through educational presentations and animal interactions. We believe that a great way to learn is through fun and unforgettable experiences!
