Behind the Scenes Education Program Effectiveness

Our purpose is to connect our guests with the animals in our care in a mutually respectful and meaningful way.

Relationship-building with wildlife is imperative as species worldwide become increasingly threatened by anthropogenic activities.

Safe and controlled up-close experiences and interactions have a profound and lasting impact, a visceral experience that begins with awe and ends with empathy. To encourage environmentally positive behavioural change, we need you to feel personally invested- you need to genuinely care.

After an orientation and some instruction, you will have the chance to spend approximately an hour with one of our Senior Animal Care staff and three animals.

The hour-long program is available every day, rain or shine, at 12:00pm and 2:45pm. Guests are welcome to enjoy the wildlife park before and after that time. There is a fun and educational guided feeding tour at 1:30pm daily!

It was something we'll never, ever forget. To be that close and touch an animal you had until now only seen through a cage or on National Geographic was a phenomenal experience. I would recommend this to people of all ages. Thank you to the staff at Jungle Cat World, you made our special day even better!
