ZooMobiles and Outreach

ZooMobiles & Outreach at EARTHLtd., Mendon, MAThis exciting program offered by EARTH Ltd. is geared towards enhancing the understanding of animal ecology and environmental issues. ZooMobiles run from October through May.

There are three types of ZooMobile presentations:

“An Introduction to Animal Ecology”

This is our most popular program and is typically presented to groups of 30-150 students. This presentation covers the life science curriculum standards as well as general information regarding animal ecology.  Some of the animals that we work with are: tortoise, lizards, snakes, alligator, large parrot, binturong, kangaroo, bush baby, African porcupine, and an armadillo.  The animals change periodically, but we try to provide you with the most unique variety possible.

A formal classroom presentation

This involves an EARTH Ltd. staff member and an educator speaking to a group of about 20 students on a a designated topic. Topics may be chosen to cover a specific Massachusetts Department of Education curriculum standard or to reinforce a designated unit. We will present 7-8 animals and sometimes use props (snake skins and turtle skeletons for example). Students are encouraged to ask questions and participate. This program also has live animals.

Animal Facilitated Therapy

This program is for those whose needs transcend a traditional educational format. It offers unique individual encounters with specially selected animals. Typical group size is 10-30 people. We present 7- 8 animals which may include some of the following: tortoise, lizard, snake, alligator, large parrot, binturong, kangaroo, bush baby, African porcupine, chinchilla, ferret, and hedgehogs. The animals change periodically, but we try to provide you with the most unique variety possible.
