HOME EXOTIC ANIMAL EDUCATION CENTRE OUTREACH EDUCATION PROGRAMME COMMUNITY PROJECTS MEMBERSHIPS VOLUNTEER CONTACT
EXO TEACH was established as a self-funded non-profit organisation in April 2013 by three friends who first met while studying animal management courses at Reaseheath College. With strong animal management backgrounds and after previously working at zoological collections the team got together to create an organisation that could help combat some of the problems surrounding exotic animal welfare in their local area.
EXO TEACH started out solely as a free help and advice service for animal enthusiasts and establishments who cared for exotic livestock. The organisation soon found its feet and gained popularity as it started to work closely alongside many local community partners. In 2014 services expanded and a outreach education programme was put in place to offer educational workshops at local schools, universities, youth groups and community organisations. These opportunities included guest talks, public exhibits, community events, practical training and phobia workshops, which were all targeted to generate a better awareness of exotic animal education, welfare and captive management.
Three years in EXO TEACH successfully opened its own exotic animal education & welfare centre in 2016, The centre was also granted with the first dangerous wild animal licence on the Wirral (Northwest UK) in over ten years. This facility provided the organisation with a much needed base to operate from, along with allowing pre-booked learning opportunities such as training courses specialising in exotic animal management topics, and encounter sessions targeted at people looking to join the hobby / industry, or wanting to learn more about exotic animals in general.
EXO TEACH maintains close working relationships with many organisations including universities, schools, animal rescue centres, vets, zoos, country parks, youth groups and national museums. All staff who work at EXO TEACH volunteer their time and come from a mixture of professional backgrounds, This allows all money raised by the organisation to go directly towards the upkeep and care of its' large animal collection, (mostly consisting of rescue animals), alongside designing future community projects.
Animal keepers are also on call 24/7 to attend exotic animal rescue and abuse situations. This free service is used to removed and re-homed unwanted exotic animals from private keepers and public locations. EXO TEACH have also taken surplus animals from organisations such as the RSPCA and local zoos. All rescued animals stay within the organisation with veterinary treatment being administered by our exotic animal vet.
