A Children's Butterfly and Otter Encounter

A Childrens Butterfly and Otter Encounter for one Child


New for 2015, our special childrens Butterfly and Otter Encounter. Its proving to be a very popular Christmas gift !
This is a hands on, educational and fun encounter with the animals and insects at the Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary and is available to purchase now and for booking between April and the end of October 2015. Bookings need to be within this time because our butterfly house is closed at other times of the year.
Suitable for ages 6 to 11, those taking part are able to spend time with one of our keepers getting close to and learning about the amazing wildlife within the butterfly house and the otter sanctuary.
There will be lots of fun studying and talking about  the complete butterfly life cycle within the hot and humid butterfly jungle. Working with and caring for newly emerged butterflies in the hatching area, checking on butterfly eggs and caterpillars. But it's not just the butterflies that need looking after, the terrapins, leaf cutting ants, and fish all need daily attention. There will also be some simple gardening work in the tropical jungle to keep all the plants in good shape, helping the butterflies to thrive in this special environment. Then there is some time is spent with the otters, again assisting in the daily care routine with the keeper, preparing food and cleaning up.

Numbers are limited to a maximun of three per session to make it personal and special for those taking part.
At the end of the session all participants are given a special "Junior Keepers Certificate".
No special clothing is required, just something cool to wear while in the butterfly house where it is hot and humid and something warmer for when outside with the otters.
