At Amate Animalia, we offer many different types of 'Animal Encounter' to meet your unique needs! We have five main types of animal encounter that are popular with schools;
- African Animals
- Animals of the Amazon / Rainforest Animals
- Australian Animals
We can custom design your animal encounter to include the species that you would like to meet (or to omit any species that you do not wish to see! e.g. snakes or spiders!).
If you wish to adapt your encounter to accommodate your specific needs, then please do not hesitate to contact us via the contact page.
Our 'Animal Encounters' allow students to get up close and personal with our rescued animals! which is not only an exciting experience which they will never forget! but we also find that it brings the learning to life!
We often find that when students get an opportunity to meet some of the animals they are learning about in real life & in their own classroom! they engage better with their learning material!
Many of the schools we have visited have reported an increase in student performance after a school visit & a higher interest level in the animal-related topic.
We visit different schools with children of all ages & abilities, thus we can tailor your encounter to suit your needs. We also present lectures at Colleges & Universities thus we can cover topics at different academic abilities.
Encounters for Higher Education
Amate Animalia also provides a range of specialist higher level lectures for secondary schools, colleges & Universities all over the UK.
Lectures last around 45 minutes to an hour and are presented using PowerPoint & other interactive aids - such as some of our rescued animals!
We use real exotic animal/wildlife case studies in order to discuss the topics in more detail & bring the topics to life!
Each lecture can be adapted to meet the needs of the teaching establishment.
We present our real life experiences & wildlife project work which is always very popular & ensures a stimulating learning environment!
