Our Bear Necessities Outreach Sessions are a fantastic way of bringing the Yorkshire Wildlife Park learning experience to your school! With two packages to choose from, you save on the cost of coaches and our education team will visit you, delivering a hands-on interactive learning experience!

What’s involved?

Linking with YWP’s project polar and the only polar bears in England! Our Bear Necessities Outreach Session will teach your students about polar bears through a range of hands on, interactive games and activities.

Students will learn about the polar bears at YWP, adaptations, their Arctic habitat, threats they face in the wild and what we can do to help. Students will get to handle a replica polar bear skull and claws during this session.  Why not also pre-book an animal adoption box for your class and this can be presented on behalf of YWPF, providing a great class photo opportunity!
