Flamingoland Offers Discount To Educate On Conservation


8:12am 8th December 2013

There's something going cheap at North Yorkshire wildlife park Flamingoland.

In a bid to educate as many youngsters in the county about conservation, animal care and captive breeding, staff at the park have dropped entry prices for North Yorkshire school groups to an unbelievable £1 per head.

The offer runs from now until next February; and anyone attending between those times will have the park to themselves. Flamingoland is normally closed to the public at this time - so school groups will be allowed exclusive access to the to zoo and Education Centre,

Flamingoland education officer Michael Darling explains: "The next few decades are going to be absolutely crucial for conservation. We've got species extintions, habitat loss and global warming at an all-time high. So it's essential that we have these robust conservation programmes to try and reverse this trend.

"We've got a brand new education team for this year, and they've spent the year re-vamping all of our education programmes. It's mostly still about the natural world - we do interactive workshops, guided tours and animal handling sessions. We're even doing a workshop on rollercoaster science in the New Year!"

If you're a teacher who's interested in Flamingoland's brand new wealth of opportunity, call 01653 668 287.
