[Meet the Beasts - Bringing Learning to Life with Reptile & Minibeasts Encounters in Hospital Schools & Mental Health]







[Reptiles & Minibeasts in Hospital Schools - Meet The Beasts]Meet the Beasts Enables Hospital School Patients Meet & Learn About Snakes, Tarantulas, Cockroaches, Lizards, Scorpions & Millipedes.

Being in hospital need not stop people experiencing the beauty & diversity of nature first-hand.

Interaction with animals of all types is known to improve quality of life in a range of people. Research suggests that snakes are particularly effective in patients struggling with depressive illness. They promoted interaction, communication, socialising & brought a sense achievement where traditional Pets As Therapy 'furry' animals had no long-lasting benefit. This was particularly true for male patients.

If you are looking to bring learning to life, provide mental & physical stimulation, provide activities that improve confidence, socialisation & communication or simply giving those in your care a fun, fulfilling & exciting activity, we can help.
