Fota Wildlife Park runs hands-on environmental and conservation workshops which allow children to learn through exploration and discovery. Visiting DPSM students are provided with a guided tour of the wildlife park, as well as an opportunity to discover what happens “Behind the scenes”! A trip to a woodland allows students to become familiar with the variety of flora and fauna that are native to Ireland through a series of hands-on sampling techniques. Animal artefacts and arts & crafts form an integral part of a great day out for students of all ages! Activities can be amended to suit all ages and weather conditions.
