Safari crawl

6th February 1998 at 00:00
Primary pupils can feel a giant millipede crawling up their arm, activate a hissing cockroach, touch a snake and hold an umbrella cockatoo at new outreach sessions run by Woburn Safari Park keepers and education staff for 50p per pupil.

Animal quizzes, a slide show, a "day in the life of a keeper" feature and an endangered species talk with items confiscated from HM Customs and Excise - such as a cheetah skin complete with bullet hole and an elephant tusk - are also included. The live animals used are used to being handled. Woburn welcomes school visits and offers a free daily programme of animal talks and demonstrations.
