This education session aims to address this through exploring sustainability issues and how they are impacting specific animals and their natural habitats.
Younger students will discover how humans are affecting wildlife and wild places, and how we can begin to live sustainably to help the planet. Students will be engaged with interactive activities, storytelling and hands-on Zoo examples of sustainability.
Older students will explore the sustainability issues facing wildlife today, and will then have an opportunity for an interactive look at our sustainability strategies here at the Zoo. Students will be encouraged to take informed action - applying what they have learnt to make ethical decisions, make a difference in their own backyard and live sustainably.
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.
