What will students see and do?
Set in 375 acres of picturesque North Yorkshire countryside, Flamingo Land is a theme park, zoo, and resort.
This site is home to all manner of creatures great and small, with tigers from the tropical forests of South East Asia, giraffes from sub-Saharan Africa, penguins from the Pacific coastline of Chile and Peru, and all the kids’ farmyard favourites in the Muddy Duck Farm – you can enjoy a truly amazing view of the animal kingdom in the heart of North Yorkshire.
However, Flamingo Land’s passion for animals goes far beyond creating truly unforgettable memories for guests. The zoo focuses on creating environments that mimic natural habitats for the 140+ species of reptiles, mammals and birds.
A number of these residents are also part of international breeding programmes, helping to preserve endangered populations in the wild.
There are plenty of exciting experiences for visiting students to enjoy, including Be A Zoo Keeper experiences, bird and sea lion shows, zoo trails and a range of educational workshops where children can get up close and personal with the animals themselves.
