Licensing & Compliance
At Wild Arena we take our corporate responsibility extremely serious. We carry full liability & trading insurance and now hold a full, 5 Star, “Animal Welfare’ licence (number 19/00498) for the inclusion of any of our animal team in events, and operate with a high level welfare policy. We are members of FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) and The International Society of Animal Professionals.
For many professional businesses, the knowledge that they are contracting a company with the right legal standing is an essential element of their own due diligence. More information on our ethical policy and qualification can be found on the ‘About Wild Arena’ section of the website.

Wild Arena is not only able to offer expert human resource for photographic events (with fully trained staff, versed in a wide range of current equipment and techniques), but can combine this with a wealth of zoological knowledge and animal subjects. Our ‘animal team’ includes species as varied as Owls, Frogs, Geckos, Mantis and Stick Insects. These much-loved living subjects often add the important element of surprise and theatre to shows or exhibitions where technology often dominates displays. When using us for animal inclusive events you can also be assured of our fully licensed, insured and regulatory compliant operational standards for your professional peace of mind.
Our super experienced team are also masters at making eye-catching displays using a variety of natural elements like plants, fungi, water and stone. We can further bring these displays to life by providing photographic grade lighting to facilitate guests capturing images of the displays.
We love working in the wilder places of the UK and can facilitate events across a wide range of locations. Our guides are also able to responsibly support guests with different levels of ability.
