The aim of Camperdown Wildlife Centre's education programme is to supply the highest standard of zoological education to visitors using every possible resource that is available to education staff. The programmes available reflect the current zoological conservation and preservation aims as guided by British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Education lessons will in most cases be guided by the outlines of the current national curriculum and attainment levels required for each student age group.

Schools, colleges, and private groups can learn about many animal topics through our education programme, which contains curriculum guides, lessons and activities. These are all offered giving students an insight into the wild environments and lives of some of our animals.

There are more waldrapp ibis in zoos than are found in the wild. Zoo-bred birds attempt to migrate when released, despite having lived in captivity.
