Otherwise known as Matt Lewis, Mr Bug is based in Aberdeen and can offer the chance to learn about bugs, as well as a range of other animals, and for animal handling sessions.

Based in Lancashire, Corio Raptor's Nick Henderson is able to bring some of the rescued birds of prey to schools so that you can learn more about these beautiful creatures and some of the problems they face.
