Educational School Programs

Fragile Planet's FREE mobile school programs consist of one, 45-minute oral presentation on our LIVE animal ambassadors. Our program offers students the opporunity to get up close and personal with animals they may have never seen before! Students participate by asking questions, responding to the presenters, and selected students will even get a chance to get involved in the demonstration making our programs both educational and entertaining.

Our presenters tailor the presentation to the age of their audience and regularly present to students ages 5 yrs and up!

Fragile Planet's exotic animal education program is 100% FREE to both your students and your school. We fund our FREE programs by providing the students the opportunity to pre-order merchandise and pictures with our animals
