Primary School Incursions

Creating the next generation of conservationists

Here at The Rookeepers we are passionate about conservation and education, and we are on a mission, not to Mars, but to a more sustainable future! We believe that ecological learning needs to be supercharged in order to save the best mother of them all.. Mother Earth.

Help us on our mission to introduce students to Australian animals, ignite passions and start conversations that will impact the future of Australia. We believe that learning through life will always beat learning through a text book so bring your classroom to life this term and book your wildlife encounter in today!

A really great program

Excellent interactive learning program for Kindergarten Children. Michael does an amazing job in making it fun and educational to my young group of children.

I couldn't recommend them more - reliable, friendly, great with children, they provide an excellent array of critters and the show is engaging and fun.

A terrific way to invest an hour

Thank you for delivering an informative and fun session at the Point Cook Community Centre today. The session was highly educational, interactive and the python photo with my daughter will deliver a story she can share with her classmates.
