Animates is a fun, interactive, and hands-on learning programme which aims to highlight the ever increasing environmental issues and dangers our planet and it's animals continue to face. We introduce endangered species that are likely to become extinct in even our lifetime unless something is done.
To do this animates offers educational workshops for schools, clubs and public events. Animates workshops involve taking a variety of live animals that can be fascinating to observe or involved in handling sessions. We are working in conjunction with HM Revenue and Customs and the illegal trade of animal merchandise.
Based in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Animates workshops have reached towns and villages all over Scotland and Ireland bringing a unique, fun and educational experience to adults and children of all ages.
