Practical Learning Activities

You are here

Practical Learning Activities are bespoke courses offering unique learning opportunities within the zoo.

Why not extend your zoo visit and let us create a Practical Learning Activity just for you. Learning Activities are available for schools and groups of all ages and abilities, designed to suit your needs and requirements and provide fantastic enrichment for children, teenagers and adults.

Practical Learning Activities are popular with a variety of groups and can be offered for 1 day or as a course over a number of weeks. Your Wildlife Learning experience will be supported by one of our expert Education Officers and can include classroom time in our state of the art Education Academy combined with practical husbandry tasks in the zoo. Our experienced staff are equipped to support all types of groups including individuals with additional needs, disabilities or challenging behaviour.

Please contact us on 01253 830805 or e-mail zoo.school@blackpoolzoo.org.uk to discuss how a Bespoke Learning Programme could work for you.

We will not be allowed to open most indoor areas: the indoor eating area of the cafe is closed, as are the indoor viewing area of animal houses including elephants, big cats, giraffes, small primates, gorillas and orangutans.  These animals all have access to their outdoor enclosures.
