World Animal Week 2023 with The National Reptile Zoo
World Animal Week 2023 takes place from the 4th to 10th October and we have teamed up with The National Reptile Zoo. All this week on Desie Today with Damien Tiernan we will be focusing on all animals big and small. On Monday's show, we will have special guests Pamba the tortoise and Freddie the iguana who’ll be visiting the WLR Studio.
The National Reptile Zoo's mission has always been to inspire passion and increase understanding of some of the planet’s lesser-known animals, and what better way to do that than by inviting you all in to meet them? We visit schools and events across the country, bringing along a range of our reptilian friends that one of our Zookeeping team will tell kids of all ages about. Our educational sessions are tailored to suit all ages – we cover reptile basics, habitat building, and ecology, and cover a range of fun and educational topics! Conservation through Education has always been our motto, and we look forward to sharing that passion with everyone. You can also visit us and meet even more of our amazing animals in person – the Zoo is open 7 days a week, including bank holidays.
Here's James Hennessy from The National Reptile Zoo with Pamba & Freddie in the studio with us on Monday, October 2nd
