Here at Paignton Zoo we offer a unique opportunity for uniformed groups to work towards badges that relate to animals and the environment.
To find out more, simply call our Education Team on 01803 697510 or email us at [email protected].
We offer four activity choices that link to badges for Scouting and Guiding groups. All activities are subject to availability, which will vary throughout the year.
Endangered Animals and Conservation
A 45-minute session in our Education Centre focusing on some of the hundreds of endangered species we look after in the zoo and how we work to conserve them and their habitats in the wild.
Who wants to be a Zookeeper?
A 45-minute session in our Education Centre finding out how our zookeepers care for our animals in the zoo from cleaning to feeding to taking them to the vets, much as you look after animals at home.
Understanding Sustainability - how our choices can make a difference
Available for Guides or Scouts only
Thinking about our day to day choices as consumers of commodities from food to fashion. The 45-minute interactive session looks at the choices we make in our day to day lives and how small changes can help us to live more lightly on the planet.
There will be the opportunity to try some edible invertebrates as part of the food section of the workshop.
Enjoy a session outside with one of our education staff talking about our own local species and have a go at minibeast hunting down on our nature trail.
