“My daughter had an amazing time with you today! She could not stop talking about everything she experienced and how lovely time she had. Many thanks!” Dagmar

“My daughter Eva and her friend have had an absolutely fantastic time in the kids club today! She has been regaling me with her adventures all evening and is so fired up about the rainforests and conservation in general. Thanks on to everyone involved, and we hope to bring her back for some more sessions over the summer.” All the best, Rachel Morley.
