Getting a closer look at an albino Milk snake.

Presented by a trained animal educator, we will introduce your guests to exotic insects, reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals. We give you an opportunity for an ‘up close’ experience with various species from around the world. We have been successfully educating people of all ages for 27 years in schools, libraries, hospitals, and festivals.

….. ” I just wanted to take a moment to express how truly impressed we were by your team. Her teaching style was enthusiastic, engaging and informative and the kids were enthralled.
Thank you so much for such a memorable experience. “

…..” Oh my word!  Honestly… your 2 employees were simply outstanding.  The one who did the speaking was so engaging and shared so much education at the same time.  What an incredible experience for all of my daughters 17 guests… and myself!  To handle that many children could be difficult, but the presenters commanded the children’s attention- not by nagging, but by engaging and peaking their interest in the critters and asking them questions, or telling a cool fact.  We were at 5:30pm booking- last of the day.  They still had tons of energy and didn’t come off as the end of their day and wanting to just leave.  They were completely punctual and we had just a lovely time. My husband ran like a baby when the tarantulas came out, so I had to be the one to wear them… but he put his big boy panties back on and allowed the snake around his neck.  Kids loved the huge fluffy bunny and the icky bugs too.  Well done USRS!!!  You have put together a great show and … it “shows”!  Thanks ” …..

…..” What a fantastic show today. The kids had such a great time as did the adults. You really put on a fantastic show for the children. Worth every penny!” … Roni B.

……” I just wanted to let you know that the party was a huge success all thanks to Urban Safari. The girls absolutely LOVED the presentation!!!!! They couldn’t stop talking about it after it was over. When parents arrived to pick up their daughters, all the girls were on the floor trying to show their parents how flexible the ‘dancing ferrets’ are. It was the funniest thing to watch. You did an outstanding presentation!!….. Michelle G.

We have years worth of positive feedback. Here is just a couple.

We had the Urban Safari Rescue Society come do a birthday party for my 4 year old this last Saturday in Maple Ridge, and the girls did such a great job I wanted to write to express my appreciation!
I feel like an idiot for forgetting their names, but the girls were absolutely amazing! They kept a small crowd of young children and toddlers captivated the entire time, and they were pros at dealing with interruptions and the general rowdiness that goes along with that sort of thing. Many of the parents commented to me that they were very impressed at how good your team was with the kids, and I agree- it’s not always easy to remain gracious when wrangling children, but it was clear that your team is not only experienced, but that they genuinely love both what they do and people.
You far exceeded my expectations, and we are already talking about having you back next year.
Thank you again- you truly made my son’s big day extra special for him.

……” thank you so much for the fun and educational experience for Charlie’s 5 th birthday. The children and adults alike had a fabulous time and everyone is raving about it. I will be encouraging everyone I know to have Urban Safari parties for all occasions. We will have many special memories from that day for years to come. Especially Grandma with tarantulas on her body!! Thank you Thank you !!!! “ ….. Anne from Maple Ridge
