Well Being

Animal Presentations are relaxed and informal, with a very tactile and sensitive approach.

This is a great experience to indulge the senses of Smell, Touch, Sound and Sight of the creatures. We are never in a rush with these groups and take our time to connect with everyone.

This is a group led activity and we can work with whatever suits your facility or centre.

Sessions usually last for an hour with each group, but we can provide shorter sessions to suit.
