Meet the New Ferrets at Bristol Zoo Gardens

Say hello to our four new ferret boys Edison, Gandalf, Tesla and Darwin who have joined the education animal collection.

They love getting cuddles, snuggling together and rolling around in their ball pit, and have already made their teaching debut in some of our amazing sessions.

    Let us take your students on an interactive adventure.  Bristol Zoo Gardens’ aim to bring learning to life through our wide range of education sessions. Delivered by our dynamic and highly skilled Education Team, we offer a unique learning experience for all ages and abilities. Sessions last 45 minutes for EYFS; 55 minutes for KS1 – KS3; 55 minutes or longer for 14-19 and we can accommodate up to 30 students per session.  

    Linked to a range of curriculums and programmes of study we will use one of our themed classrooms to create an exciting learning environment, sometimes with sound effects. Live animals that can be held, touched or viewed at very close quarters are used in all sessions.

    We also use items such as skins, furs, tusks, horns, shells and mounted specimens and short film clips are often shown to support your chosen topic.

    Book your education sessions now for a chance to meet our new ferrets!
