About Us


Opening Children's Eyes to the Wonder of Animals

 Located in San Diego, California, Critter Encounters is a live animal education company providing up close animal presentations for preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, camps, Girl Scout™ and Boy Scout™ troops, special occasions, and parties. Backed by more than 15 years of experience, we bring to you a number of different touchable animals for children of all ages to take part in interactive encounters and expand their awareness of local and global animals and ecosystems. We look forward to sharing our critters with you. 


Up Close and Touchable

 Let us bring animals to your classroom, your next school assembly, special occasion, private event, or your next birthday party. Critter Encounters provides interactive animal presentations taught in a professional manner while fun and educational at the same time. Up close encounters and touching opportunities with most of our critters make us incredibly unique! Positive experiences with exposure to animals as a child can foster a love of wildlife and nature to last a lifetime.
