The Community Education provision at Knowsley Safari aims to have a positive impact on the lives of people in the local area. We want to make a contribution beyond that of being an animal organisation and support residents with some of the social challenges they face.

To fulfil this aspiration we deliver programs with three core focuses: 

Supporting health and wellbeing: that is feeling good and functioning well

Widening Participation: Reaching those who wouldn't otherwise be able to access our provision 

Careers and aspirations


Although zoo involvement in social challenges is a little outside the box, it is clear we have the assets to support our locality and furthermore we have a responsibility to do so. Conservation of the environment is no longer a conversation just about animals; it is about societal habitats and our culture. At Knowsley Safari we have recognised that to engage audiences better with global challenges we first have to address the more local obstacles. The UN sustainable development goals tell us that the environment is a not a stand-alone topic but rather part of a complex tapestry of issues facing the modern world: This is why mental health and wellbeing can go hand in hand with a zoo based education programme. ​
