"Fun - The Reptile Encounters experience is a combination of excitement and intrigue. It will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing up, while everyone laughs, learns and is left in awe. "

"Experience - Our Wildlife Ambassadors create lasting memories by providing a once in a lifetime experience through our award-winning reptile shows. "

"Educational - Our passionate Wildlife Ambassadors consistently receive positive feedback. They not only keep the students engaged, but also broaden the teachers' understanding of Australia’s unique wildlife!"


  • Connected – As a society we have become disconnected from nature. Many students have become disengaged and lack respect for their environment. Reptile Encounters reconnects students and teachers with nature and ‘inspires’ students via our educational wildlife programs.
  • Wellbeing – We live in a digital era, which has resulted in our brains being permanently switched on. Our students stuck in facebook land are in fight or flight mode permanently. Connecting with nature allows students to escape from their online world and gain ‘perspective’.
  • Impact – By introducing students and teachers to our native wildlife, Reptile Encounters programs can improve learning, increase engagement and leave a lasting legacy. Ultimately the result of students experiencing our programs is ‘Better Humans’!

Programs with Purpose

At Reptile Encounters our mission is to be a voice for those that don’t have one. Our up close wildlife experiences create lasting memories and inspire students to take an interest in the natural world. Our goal is to create a generation of “Better Humans”!

Through our partnership with B1G1(Buy1Give1), Reptile Encounters is embedding giving into our business and is committed to being a BUSINESS FOR GOOD. B1G1 does all the hard work by vetting projects around the world that are contributing to making the world a better place. For every program we deliver in 2019 we are going to plant a tree in the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest.
