Jurassic encounters is based in Brandon, with the opening of our wildlife park we will be covering schools and care homes in Lincolnshire and North Norfolk.
At Jurassic encounters, animal welfare is at the heart of everything we do, from our mobile petting zoo to our exotic animal rescue program.
Many petting zoos only have to be inspected once every few years by there local council, we believe this is not enough and that stricter and more frequent checks are needed in order to ensure animals are receiving the correct standards of care, that is why we open ourselves up to additional inspections, including veterinary inspections.
We are also working in conjunction with leading animal welfare groups and individuals to further promote exotic animal welfare and offer advice based on our 26 years of exotic animal experience.
