About UsLyndsay – Animals Take Over Owner


My name is Lyndsay and I have always been around animals, even as a child. When I left School, I studied animal behaviour and welfare at college, before spending 3 months in South Africa volunteering on various conservation projects. When I returned home I continued to work with animals and was inspired to set up Animals Take Over, so I could share my passion for animals with Children (and adults too!) 


My animals Take Over Journey began by seeting up a simple website, then a visit to a local library where I carried out my first Animals Take Over workshop. This was the catalyst to what has now become a full time career, educating Children and making memories all around the Northwest. Over the years the business has grown so much that we had to take on a new member of the team.
