SERC has a collection of Wildlife Ambassadors including snakes, turtles, tortoises, frogs, toads,and a tarantula available to come for a few days to visit in your classroom. Using these animals in lessons gives students the opportunity to make observations about behaviors, adaptations, and anatomy of living beings that they rarely have the opportunity to see up close. Pre-service and in-service teachers who want to check out a Wildlife Ambassador are required to go through a Science Live! workshop and certification. Please contact the SERC Director for more information.
You must reserve live animals at least one week in advance. Contact the SERC Director to make a reservation once you have been certified through a Science Live! workshop.
