Paradise Wildlife Park School Trips

Home / London & South East / Hertfordshire

Paradise Wildlife offers the perfect blend of education and fun for school trips all year round. The zoo’s commitment to animal conservation makes it an ideal place to teach children about wildlife and we can even arrange visits to schools with some of our animal friends. We base our classes and talks around the school curriculums to ensure we meet the educational standards required.

We offer talks from Animal care to conservation and bespoke presentations tailored to your requirements.
