University and College Animal Workshops
Zoo2U can offer Universities and Colleges a wide range of animal related encounters. The Zoo2U core values are to Interact, Educate and Inspire with their amazing group of exotic animals. In the past their focus on education has brought Zoo2U to many Colleges and Universities where they have offered a vast array of bespoke animal encounters.
Below are three examples of the benefits Zoo2U can bring to your College and University:
Keele University - Newcastle Under Lyme
Zoo2U visited students with a selection of animals across a number of planned visits to teach on husbandry aspects and legalities within the captive exotic animal industry. These were presented in lectures and hands on sessions to students. The interactive experience proved to be invaluable to students and lecturers alike.
Liverpool John Moores University - Screen School TV Studios; Liverpool
After meeting with the students to discuss their project, Zoo2U’s Melissa provided a specific selection of animals to assist with a media production. The year 2 graduate students were working on an assignment to record an interview on ‘Live’ TV with Melissa, where the animals were also on screen. Everyone learned a lot and found it a really interesting and gathered some great skills for the more challenging interviews, especially with the cheeky meerkats!
Manchester Metropolitan University - Crewe
Zoo2U were invited to the Manchester Metropolitan University’s Crewe campus to join in their ‘destress’ week, presenting the animals in a bespoke static display. Students loved getting up close and personal with the animals and were eager to engage with Zoo2U staff with intriguing questions. The event certainly gave the young people a much needed break from revision, during a very busy period.
Zoo2U can bring their exotic animals into your lectures or ad-hoc locations for small projects. The benefits for inspiring all levels from undergraduates, graduates and lecturers is well documented and our experienced Zoo2U staff will be happy to cater for many different requests. Meanwhile our great animal collection will help with topics such as:
- Science Lectures

Zoo2U's animals originate from different parts of the world and include:
- Reptiles; such as lizards, snakes and tortoises

- Mammals; such as hedgehogs and meerkats
All Zoo2U animals are captive bred and have been handpicked to create an exciting, fun and adaptable team. Their animals have all been handled from young so are super friendly and enjoy interacting with humans, which means that Zoo2U can offer a hands-on animal encounter which is safe, educational and of course fun!
