The Travelling Menagerie is run by Tim Maynard who spends his days taking his animals to schools across the country with a project he founded called the Living Classroom. The classrooms were established to support children and families from all backgrounds, to live and learn using nature and the environment. Living Classrooms will work with early year settings, primary school, secondary schools, out-of-school groups, families, community groups and like-minded organsations to promote the use of nature and our surrounding environments, urban or rural, as a learning tool.
