Our Ambassador Animals

Ambassador animals are living creatures. Therefore, for their saftey, comfort and well-being we are not permitted to be in rooms or venues with other animals present. For outdoor venues, weather conditions will determine the species availible for that program. Due to the needs/health of our animals we cannot guarantee a specific animal species for your program. Ambassador animals can only be offsite (including travel time) for a maximum amount of hours.

 

Below are the current themes offered for special programs. Themes are not necessary unless specific animals are requested (none of the animals listed will be guaranteed on the day of your program).
