Inspiring, Educational & Entertaining Experiences
with Pets & Exotic Animals!
AT YOUR SCHOOL OR HOME, OR LIVE AND INTERACTIVE WITH ZOOM!
ZooVentures is a 'close contact' experience as supervision is required during animal handling. We will be up and running as soon as Covid levels allow. ZooVentures staff are fully vaccinated.
Please feel free to book your holiday programs, parties, and school visits now - pending level changes.
Our live and interactive ZooVentures Zoo Trip can come to you via Zoom anytime and is a perfect end of year treat for schools and learning centres.
ZOOVENTURES IN-SCHOOL WORKSHOPS - we bring the zoo to your school for hands-on fun and learning!
Teachers love our curriculum relevant workshops, available at all levels. Workshop topics include animal diversity, endangered animals, animals and the environment, life cycles and creative writing, through to animal career STAR courses and practical pet-care, or we work with your topic.
This is a great option for Auckland schools wanting an interactive animal experience without having to travel.

ZOOVENTURES EXOTIC ANIMAL PARTIES - we bring the animals to your place!
The perfect option for older children and teens.
For animal lovers, our parties are fantastic fun and provide a stress-free and unique option for memorable birthdays. Parties are educational and fun, and always reinforce the importance of kindness and respect towards animals.
A ZooVenture party is most suitable for children from 8 years through to teens and beyond, though we welcome younger school age children with an assurance of quiet and gentle behavior. We provide an age-appropriate experience with lots of fun and interaction, with an 'exotic animal workshop' style for teens.
We come to your home or venue throughout North and Central Auckland, with amazing pets and exotic animals. From feeding bearded dragons and holding baby tortoises to creating animal habitats, grooming long haired guinea pigs, meeting giant stick insects and lots more animal adventures, party guests are guaranteed a great time and will learn lots too!
We have popular 'fluffy' pets such as mice, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats and rabbits, through to leopard geckos, bearded dragons, blue tongue lizards, water dragons, tortoises, turtles, birds, and amphibians, as well as our performing pups, Margo and Badger. There is even some creepy crawlies!
Our party hosts are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and will make your birthday celebration or event a special day to remember.
We are based in Whangaparaoa, Auckland. We travel to North and Central Auckland.
HOLIDAY PROGRAMS & EVENTS
For providers of central and north Auckland holiday programs, we bring the zoo to you. Groups of all sizes are guaranteed a fun and educational program with our pets and exotic creatures.
We are also available to attend community events, shopping centres and store fun days.
ZooVentures Classroom Safari with Zoom - Schools, Early Childhood, and other Learning Centres
Join us for a series of workshops exploring the animal kingdom with the help of our amazing creatures. Live and interactive with your class or student group. We’ll be right with you in real time, responding to students, and with all the spontaneity and unpredictability that working with live animals brings!
Topics include dragons, turtles and tortoises, geckos and skinks, homes and habitats, survival strategies, awesome amphibians, caring for animals, furry friends, beaks and feathers, pest or pet?, and lots more! Sessions compliment many parts of the ‘living world’ curriculum and are delivered according to each groups age and level by our zoology graduate and course faciliator, Sally Hibbard. We also have excellent programs for early childhood centres to help little learners explore the animal kingdom.
Sessions are 30 minutes to an hour depending on how much interaction there is from students. We visit classrooms and all other learning environments and groups. Students will look forward to a weekly ZooVentures session, or just request a single workshop that reflects a topic of interest. Follow up worksheets also supplied to reinforce learning.
Discounts available for multiple sessions – please email for pricing with details of class or students (age, area of interest, number of children).
This is a cost effective and fun way to have the ZooVentures pets and exotic animals at your classroom or learning centre wherever you are!
