Captivating audiences with exciting and educational presentations, the Murray Education Centre at Wildlife haven delivers on site and outreach presentations and activities! These workshops and presentations are perfect for schools, service clubs, community events, senior living centres, corporations or any other occasion for audiences eager to learn about wildlife!
Want to learn more about wildlife? Our Wildlife Ambassadors attend presentations and information booths for an experience you will never forget!
Each non-releasable Wildlife Ambassador has a story to tell about why they are not able to return to the wild and a lesson to teach about how we peacefully coexist with wildlife. From owls, hawks and falcons, to reptiles and amphibians - our presentations give you a chance to meet them up close!
To book a presentation or information booth contact our Education Coordinator for more information.

How you can help wild spring babies and avoid the common mistake of kidnapping young animals and birds. Special appearance from one of our live non-releasable Wildlife Ambassadors. Maximum group size is 30. (45 min) Ages 5-9.
Raptors and Reptiles: Adaptations for Survival
Using live raptors and reptiles, we can discover how these animals use special “tools” and adaptations for survival. Examine a hawk’s talons, a turtle’s shell, and a snake’s scales. How do they hunt and hide? Are they “nocturnal”, “diurnal”, or “crepuscular”? Can we tell by looking at them what they eat? Are they ruthless killers or do they balance fragile ecosystems? Raptors and Reptiles will answer all these questions and more.
If you don’t see a program that fits your needs, we are able to structure a program that suits your requirements. We can customize material for any age or audience incorporating themes like wildlife ecology, wildlife rehabilitation, conservation, biodiversity, seasonal adaptations, habitat preservation, and more.
