Hands on Exotics provides fun, positive hands-on presentations that help educate our campers and dispel myths and fears about animals. They believe that meeting and interacting with animals up-close in person enhances learning and fosters a great respect for wildlife. In this way, Hands on Exotics imparts knowledge on responsible animal care as many exotic animals are obtained as pets without enough understanding of their required care. They also like to discuss wildlife conservation issues and empower individuals to help, whether it be from a ‘backyard conservation’ level to a global scale.
