In this virtual session we will learn about some feathered friends we find at the Zoo, exploring the ways in which parts of their bodies help them move, find food, and stay safe in their habitats.
Younger students will be encouraged to observe and discuss 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 discuss 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.
