The goal of Animal Wonders is to have our students leave a program feeling as strongly and appreciative of conservation and wildlife as our educators do. We create age-appropriate programs for workshops at schools, scouts, 4-H, FFA, libraries, pre-schools, churches, day-cares, after-school activities, youth groups, senior centers, community center camps & workshops, corporate functions, or other special event. Students will learn about animal classification, basic anatomy, diets, animal behavior, ecosystems, terminology, endangered species, and habitat improvement. Our goal is education, not to show off the "most exotic" or "ornamental" animal. We want our guests to learn about responsible animal ownership and conservation concerns. For more information, , please call Animal Wonders at 816-807-4748 ; visit our site at www.animalwonders.net ; visit us on Facebook ; follow us on Twitter . Live Animal Presentations - We feel that it is important that the students get to see the animals in person during our programs. All of our animals are safe when handled by our educators, most of which have been employed & trained by AZA accredited institutions. The species that will be presented will be customized to the program selected. We have a variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates that will enhance the program. Animal Wonders DOES NOT condone private ownership nor would expose any children to primates, wild canids, and wild felids. WE ARE NOT THE COMPANY THAT TAKES ORDERS FOR OR SELLS BABY EXOTIC ANIMALS!!! Our animals are for educational purposes; they are not circus acts or performers.
