        What We do?

        After a combined 35 years of Mike and Rhonda working as qualified Senior Zoo Keepers in the animal environment and 4 years running a successful egg hatching education programme around Perth, we have joined forces to set up Meet the Animals’ that delivers a programme, perfect for therapy, education or purely for the love of having animals around you. 

        ‘Meet the Animals’, is extremely suitable for visits to Aged Care, Mental Health Care, Rehabilitation Centres, Child Care Centres, Special Needs Schools, Local Libraries, Vacation Care, Birthday Parties, Fundraising or any organization or person that requires stimulation, or any kind of mental stress relief by Animal Therapy.  

        We will be delivering a 5-day egg hatching education programme with a difference by using small quail egg, producing small very appealing quail chicks or we can also provide the back yard chook eggs, which you can keep 2 to 4 chicks for your own garden. 

        Want to get your kids off the computer and outside, and give them some responsibilities?  You can do this with animals.  We offer some advice on which pet is suitable for your family.

        Meet the Animals’ will cover good pet care,  advice on working with animals through volunteer work in the animal industry and a fun exciting experience. All delivered by two qualified, knowledgeable, experience people in their field that enjoy delivering this programme to people, to gain, respect, empathy for all creatures on this planet.
