At the award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park, you can get as close to nature as possible. As educators, we want to encourage a curiosity about wildlife, a respect and awe of nature, and the desire to contribute to our planet as a whole. YWP is the only place in England to see polar bears roaming in one of the biggest polar bear reserves in the world!
YWP offers the perfect learning environment for students of all ages. The award winning Education sessions at the park are sure to enhance your students knowledge and appreciation of wildlife. Education sessions are available to pre-book in the purpose built Discovery Forest Classrooms and are available for all levels and abilities with a choice of different topics. Expedition walking tours are also available if you would prefer to keep your learning outside the classroom.
You can also bring the excitement of Yorkshire Wildlife Park into your classroom through Skype.Virtual sessions are available to book for both pre & post visits or as stand alone sessions. Ideal to use as an introduction to new topics and a great way to engage your students.. The education team will call your class live from the park to answer all of their questions. An outreach programme is also available.
School groups can explore the park as they wish, attend feeding times and ranger talks giving students a fantastic opportunity to talk to our experienced and qualified staff.
