We will observe some animals at the Zoo to see how parts of their bodies help them move, find food and stay safe in their habitats.
Younger students will explore with animal artefacts to identify how animals’ bodies are different and suited to the place where they live.
Older students will investigate the ways in which animals protect themselves from the weather and from predators, find or catch their food and attract a mate.
We will also explore how changes in habitats due to human activities may drastically affect the survival of wildlife. Examples of conservation projects may be used to illustrate how the Zoo is helping to protect animals in their wild habitats.
Sessions with a Zoo Educator will last for approx. 45 minutes. Outside this time you are free to explore the Zoo. Most schools plan to arrive for 9:30am opening and leave by 2:00pm.
