We start with a general monologue about diversity and some surprising facts about life forms. We then go to the live animals, beginning with insects to lizards to snakes to tortoises & turtles. In this part, WEC volunteers carry different types of each species around the room so people can get up close and ask questions. Some of the animals can be touched. Volunteers with hand sanitizer follow. From there we go to our higher level animals--a cockatoo and a variety of mammals, culminating with a fun and educational visit from Maggie, our black-handed spider monkey.
