Education and Outreach

Our Education and Outreach Officer delivers engaging sessions on wildlife from around the world using brilliant biofacts, Dublin Zoo animal footage and insights to conservation work in the field. Designed to support the Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE) and DPSM accredited, your students are encouraged to really investigate the living world around them just like Charles Darwin once did.

If you book a class or school session, we offer a 15% discount on a class follow-up visit to the Zoo. Dublin Zoo’s education department are on hand to deliver a session that is tailored to your student’s needs.
