You will receive tips and guidance on how to capture the most impactful and inspiring images while having the time of your life. Different animals will be brought out by handlers to provide even more opportunities to work on areas such as portraiture and macro.

This is the largest free-flight Asian aviary in the Western Hemisphere.
