With over 30 years of professional experience in
zoos, wildlife refuges, laboratories and a nature center,

and skill into your classroom
Mr. Schwartzman has trained elephants, developed and operated a nature center,
and has handled hundreds of venomous snakes
while working in a venom laboratory.

Formerly the head keeper of the renowned California Alligator Farm, Mr. Schwartzman has spent most of his life working with animals as a trainer, keeper and educator.  His zoological experience spans a wide range of species from elk to elephants, from bird spiders to gaboon vipers.

of exciting "hands on" presentations to young people in seven states.
  Today, you can witness your students become enthralled by meeting
some of the world's most exotic creatures in Mr. Schwartzman's care.

"Howard Schwartzman's enthusiasm for science will excite any child." 
"He captures their attention and does a great job educating them in the process! 
A great presenter for any classroom.  He keeps the kids spell bound."

"The slides and animals you brought helped the students focus
in a way that I couldn't achieve.  Your stories were relevant and interesting,
making your presentation rank among the best ever.

and with these together, he does a truly caring educational job."
