More about Little Ray's Reptiles:
Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo is a privately funded zoo and animal rescue and is the largest of it’s kind in Eastern Ontario. It was founded and owned by husband and wife team Paul and Sheri Goulet, and in 2008 the zoo’s curator, Matthew Korhonen, also became a partner.
The zoo has the largest and most diverse animal education outreach program in Canada and is extremely proud of the reputation they have built.
Their one of a kind, fun and interactive approach to Eco-Education has been a hit with children and adults alike since 1995. It is this very approach that has won them acclaim and awards working with children of all ages, including the visually impaired, special needs and autistic children. They have also trained zookeepers at other zoological facilities on presentation skills and the care and husbandry of reptiles and invertebrates.
With every presentation, from birthday parties to school groups, and with every visit to the zoo, their dynamic, informative staff will both entertain and educate you about the amazing animals they have the privilege to work with.
