Reviews for Animalia
The Beech Grove Parks Department has enjoyed the shows Animalia offered our community. They are very educational, professional as well as fun and interactive! It was a great show and we will definitely have them back in the future.
Animalia has presented programs at the Indianapolis Public Library for a few summers. They provide a great service with plenty of knowledge, expertise, and professionalism that translates to keeping audiences of all ages entertained and engaged. Nothing beats a great live animal program!!
Animalia is always a winning program at our school. Joel does an amazing job educating the children on a child friendly level. He always brings a wonderful variety of animals and lets the children experience a close encounter with many unusual critters.
We love Animalia at Trinity Child Care/Fishers
We had an absolutely fabulous experience with the Animalia staff and it's animals. They came right to our location and put on an awesome show. They had interesting animals and involved the children in their performance. The staff that put on the performance where personable and knowledgeable about the animals in their care. They brought animals that the children would not have otherwise had a chance to interact with in their everyday life.
I would recommend their show to anyone whom was interested in a real demonstration of animals, not just a theatrical event. The staff was able to answer questions about the care and the normal lives of the animals they were handling. All in all a good show.
Animalia has presented at our Adoptive Family camp for the past two summers. We have loved them! The kids love all of the animals and fun facts. The adults love the educational value and the fact that no two animals come twice. Joel and his team are great to work with. Prompt, reliable and a great value for what you get. We can't wait to have them again next year! Jill Henry, I-FACE (Indiana Families for Adoption Community and Education).
Joel did a wonderful job presenting their animal show to 125 campers aged 5-11. They did a great job keeping the large group engaged. We booked the show last minute, and Joel was very accommodating to find a day and time that they were available. They were a great addition to our animal theme week of camp!
Joel is absolutely amazing! He is super knowledgeable and really engages the audience. He does a great job of educating the audience about the specific animals, as well as tying it all together as to why these exotic and/or wild animals shouldn't be kept as pets. Animalia offers great programs and will work with you to tailor the program to your specific goals for a program of this nature.
We have used Animalia for 5 years at a camp that we host for kids with special needs. Joel and his staff are wonderful with the kids. We can always count on him to be on time and be interactive with the kids. It's one of the kids favorite activities of the week! I would highly recommend Animalia to anyone!
My library absolutely loved the program!!! It was so informative and interactive. I would recommend it to anyone
Animalia brought their program to our camp in Bedford Indiana. Joel and his crew did a great job educating and keeping the attention of over 100 kids! We really appreciate all their hard work!
