Special Considerations for Education Programs
ALL people in attendance aged 2 and above MUST wear masks when touching / interacting with animals.
Participation in interactions is at the discretion of the presenter.
We need at least 10 FEET as a buffer between our presenter and the attendees.
Enhance your “Distance Learning” offerings with a Virtual Safari! We can host a “Zoom” session featuring ANY of our Educational Programs and we have prerecorded videos available as well.
See here for more details.
Science comes “alive” in the classroom with our interactive wildlife education programs! Let one or more of our degreed staff of biologists and life scientists, and at least 6 furry, feathered and or scaly teachers come to you for a unique educational experience that will keep your students enthralled and eager to learn more.
Each program is tailored to a child’s comprehension at their class and age level. Wild Wonders, Inc is a licensed, insured animal education organization comprised of caring professionals with a combined lifetime of experience in animal handling and education.
We incorporate California science standards, reading, vocabulary, social studies and math, all in a fun format! Our educators have been guest speakers for the California Kindergarten Conference, California G.A.T.E. Academy, California Science Teachers Association and the National Montessori Association.
Our staff of degreed biologists and our 120+ “creature-teachers” will bring the wonders of wildlife to your educational programs. Students will learn about a range of species from around the world with a unique opportunity to meet bush babies, boa constrictors, and many more Wild Wonders animal-ambassadors. Curriculum will cover the important role these animals play in keeping our world green. Topics can be tailored to age appropriate activities with post education materials on wildlife, conservation, and the importance of preservation.
I want to take a moment to thank you for such a wonderful program yesterday. Your staff is always so wonderful to work with and they really brought joy to the children of Potrero. We were able to fill our tiny community room with 70 people yesterday! An adult commented, “This is so awesome!” Thank you so much for all you do and we hope to have you again in the future.

I have had the Wild Wonders presentations in my classroom for ten years now …. We have had all five programs Wild Wonders offers, and have found each program to be very educational and high interest. This is learning at its best! The parents who attend are also amazed at how much they learn. We find the programs to be safe, informational, and relevant. The presenters have all been very professional and competent, both in their knowledge and in their ability to work with the children.
Thank you, Jackie and Wild Wonders!

Distance Learning options
If a visit from Wild Wonders is not in the cards for you now, one of our keeper / educators will present any of our Education Programs via Zoom. The programs have the same content as our live programs, and there’s time for a Q&A session at the end.
Another alternative is watching videos of our Education Programs.
Find our more about both here.
Our pricing is very attractive as our programs start at $450. There may be a nominal mileage charge depending on your location, and extra charges apply for programs after 4PM.
