Dublin Zoo is a haven of wildlife and a large living classroom for all ages. The Discovery and Learning Centre provides high quality wildlife and animal conservation programmes from pre-school right through to adult learners.
Dublin Zoo’s education department offers a range of exciting, interactive and structured educational programmes, workshops and resources, tailored to meet the specific needs of all learners - our specialist teachers tailor programmes to meet the needs of the national curricula.
And if you can’t make it to the zoo, we can visit you! The Outreach Programme provides exciting, hands-on lessons using biofacts to explore how animals use camouflage, their diet type and how they adapt to the environment. We aim for students to leave with a heightened appreciation of the natural world and an understanding of conservation.
Special programmes available for pre-school, primary, secondary, and third level education
