Meet then Greet
During this program, the first 60-90 minutes will focus around explaining the basics of each animal; what it is, where it is from and so on. The second half of this three hour program will be a Q & A format. Ed and one other handler will set up at tables and open up to questions, allow the animals to be pet, and provide plenty of picture opportunities.

Of course our main focus is to find creative ways to fund our rescue center. This means we have the flexibility to work with Universities and Colleges to create customized programs to meet your needs. We've done adaptations of our 50/50 Lecture, our Exhibit formats and even our selection of animals to fit Family Fun Days, Cultural Days, Campus Events and many other activities. If you have a vision we'd be more than happy to discuss how to bring it to life for your students.

Interactive Live-Streaming / Webinar
Our programs are now available for collegiate audiences outside of the northeast region. Any of our listed programs above, or even a presentation catered to your field of study or interests, can be streamed, live, to your institution, where we can provide an experience featuring several exotic animals, even if you are hundreds of miles away. This program works very well for academia located in rural and city areas without a local animal education provider or zoo. This format also provides the opportunity for ongoing question and answer with our professionally trained, presenting zoo-keeper. Students and faculty can ask questions about the animals while the program is in process.
We can work with Google Video Call, Skype, or any other number of streaming options – just let us know what you’d like to use.
***Prices vary based on program length / content***
